App. 22, 310 N.W.2d 261 1981, lv den, 413 Mich. 909 (1982), reversed the long-standing precedent that a party could obtain contractual indemnity for its own negligence if that intent was specifically stated in an indemnity agreement, and created the new rule that an indemnity agreement requiring indemnity for “all claims” includes the indemnitee’s own negligence.
