RE: Architect cheating on structural calculations - where's the building depa...

I find it interesting that attorneys seem to be obsessed with how much
one is paid to do one's job as an engineer.

The "bad guy" that I described here some time back dwelt on that point
ad nauseum, implying (among other of his colorful allegations) that I
was just a "hired gun" willing to say anything for the almighty buck.

The incredible irony came at the end of the trial, the so-called
"attorneys fees" phase, when he went to great lengths to justify his
$1,600 per hour fee!

Truly, lawyers have no soul. (And I don't mean they can't keep a
syncopated rhythm).

When a project is over, I'm inclined to clean all the scratch paper and 
redundant stuff up, but the I keep the PO's the correspondence and 
everything that documents the state of the job on the day I was paid.
