By the way, for those interested in these ethical issues - I am
rewriting (with permission) the essay's of Arnold Bookbinder, SE who,
in California, was an expert Witness (SE) and who wrote the original
Professional Ethics manual for the SEAOC. Arnold gave me some great
articles regarding the engineers professional rights and ethics and has
recently been asked to participate in with a new committee at the State
of California who wishes to revise the legal system in regard to expert
witness testimony. The goal is to have a tribunal (and this is very
preliminary at the moment) hired by the court to review the claims for
suit against an engineer and weed out the frivolous claims. There are
many problems as I think most of you can figure (educators verses
practitioners on the tribunal, conflicts of interest, experience in the
type of work mentioned in the claim etc.). I hope to continue to
elaborate on his work as time progresses and will be adding this to the
Structuralist.Net Professional Blog!|
For the moment, the transcription of his work is going slow because of lack of time. However, I do believe it will make some good reading and room for comments when it is published.
