Yesterdays L.A. times ( Fri, 3-7-97 ) has a small article on page 2 of the business section about AB746. This bill would give ( CA ) consumers 6 years instead of the current 10 years to sue for building deficiencies. The bill is sponsored by the state dept. of insurance, which wants to reduce escalating insurance premiums for the construction industry. Consumer attorneys are opposed to this bill. Since insurance costs must be passed on to the consumer, this bill seems very fair to me. Most defects i have heard of are evident in the first few years ( or much later after an earthquake ). I think this is good for engineers and i support it but i wish there was more i could do. Any ideas? Recently i saw a flier for a forensic expert seminar. Where is this going ? I feel like consumer attorneys, not engineers, will be determining sound and rational engineering practice if something does not change. I would like to hear your comments on this subject.
