The Engineering Community has won a major victory. Ed Turner has finally won
his legal battle. He has been vindicated by a jury who simply saw the case
for what it was: the ability of a Professional Engineer to exercise his
professional judgment in protecting the Public's health and safety, namely
the issue of "responsible charge".
Now that we have this watershed decision, I hope it will embolden the
leadership of our various Engineering Societies to take more aggressive
actions in defense of the Engineering Profession. The Engineering Profession
has finally won a major legal victory. Maybe some of our colleagues may make
light of this momentous event, but in my opinion we have accomplished what
many people thought was impossible. This battle has taught us that if we
persist and stay the course and get support from the Engineering Community,
we will ultimately prevail. Let us relish the moment.
Please, share this good news with your colleagues. We will be publicizing
this victory in the media and other venues.
