Somershein v. Home Depot, DEFAX Case No. D67490 (C.P. New Castle Dec. 13, 2016), Smalls, C.J. (6 pages).
An appeal from a peace court action asserting a claim for common-law negligence did not violate the mirror image rule where the pro se complaint, bill of particulars, and written order from the justice of the peace made sufficient reference to defendant's vetting and referral of a home improvement contractor to establish a colorable common-law negligence claim that could be refined on appeal.
