Defendant/appellant, Cook Consultants, appeals a judgment of liability for negligently surveying property owned by appellee, Larson. Cook argues that (1) absent privity of contract, it owed no duty to Larson; (2) the claim was barred by the two year statute of limitations; (3) the actual damages issues were improper; (4) the court erred by refusing to submit its requested issue and instructions on avoidable consequences; (5) the evidence of gross negligence was legally and factually insufficient; (6) evidence of Larsons physical and emotional distress was irrelevant; and (7) the award of exemplary damages was excessive. We hold that (1) Cook is liable for negligent misrepresentation; (2) the statute of limitations did not bar the claim; (3) the evidence of cost of demolition was legally insufficient; (4) the refusal to submit the requested issue and instruction on avoidable consequences was not error; (5) there was no evidence of gross negligence; (6) any error in admitting the evidence of physical and emotional injury was harmless; and (7) the award of exemplary damages was excessive. We modify the judgment and affirm.
