Unlawful indemnity agreements. Provides that the law concerning indemnity agreements in construction or design contracts applies to certain design-build contracts. Specifies that "sole negligence" for purposes of liability under a construction or design contract does not include: (1) vicarious liability; (2) imputed negligence; or (3) assumption of a nondelegable duty. Urges the legislative council to assign to the appropriate study committee the issue of whether a provision in a professional services contract that requires indemnification or defense of a promisee for certain liability is against public policy.
