Certificate of Merit to sue architects or engineers? (Tue Tip)

You know how they say the best laid plans can go awry? Just as unforeseen issues pop up in construction, they also pop up in the practice of law. So, while it is still Tuesday, I apologize for the late hour of my post.

I bring you good tidings, despite my lateness. Right now, in the North Carolina General Assembly, is a proposed bill that would require a Certificate of Merit to be filed in civil litigation against an architect, engineer, or a design firm. If it passes, this would require that an unbiased, third party (who is also a licensed professional) has reviewed the claim and believes it has merit.

Please see full tip below for more information.
