Here is the link to the April 2014 CU that claims to resolve:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2863881
Some clients may not want to implement CU’s or wait the SharePoint team’s direction on implementing CU/SPs.  There is an alternative to the April 2014 CU which is to tailor a SQL Script described here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/projectsupport/archive/2013/12/11/project-server-2013-error-loading-views-if-the-default-view-is-missing.aspx

Thanks Scott for the research on this topic.

    ◦ When you use a template to create a project in PWA, and the template contains a null task, the project cannot be displayed in Project views, and you may receive the following error message:

    ◾View Failure The view failed to load.

    Press OK to reload this view with the default settings. Press Cancel to select another view.

    ◾Additionally, the CPU usage may reach 100 percent.

    Note: A null task is a blank row between rows.
