Re: Code violations

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
CSES is "Consulting Structural Engineers Society", a group of structural 
engineers with monthly meetings ( every third Thursday of the month) in Los 
Angeles addressing topics related to the practicing engineer.  
To follow up, the Economic Loss Rule, applied in Aas wrongly in my view, has 
no application when serious code violations are in question, or where the 
integrity of a structure is jeopardized by inferior construction or faulty 
design.   Leaving consumers with only contractual remedies against 
developers, who severly limit their contractual liability, is an injustice.
