If what you say is all the substance of the law suit, it has no merit. The defination of a Clip has changed.
On the two page form it was defined as:
“Metal attachments on every rafter/truss and nailed to one side(or both side in the case of a diamond type clip) of the rafter/truss and attached to the top plate of the wall frame or embeded in the bond beam.”
There was No number requirement for the number of nails. If there is no nails visible on the sides of the attachment, it does not rule out a nail in the top side of the truss. In older homes, it was not uncommon for a metal attachment to be attached to the top plate on both sides of the truss, wraped over the truss, a nail placed in the top side of the truss.
In addition, the Sannibel attachment has NO NAILS in the truss and it qualifies as a double wrap.
Another Dade County Frivolous lawsuit!
