Thanks for your clarification.
Then, how is an engineer subject to disciplinary action by the board of
engineers for inadequate design? Could it stem from the same complaint that
the engineer was found not liable? Or, should there be a separate complaint
filed with the board, which has nothing to do with the original lawsuit.
