I have a flush mount metal box properly sized. The NM cable feeding it has the bare equipment gnd wire attached directly to the box itself. The gnd is properly attached at the main panel.
The receptacle is a duplex. When you remove the plastic cover plate, you notice that there is no pigtail from the ground screw on the box to the gnd screw on the receptacle. Ah ha!! The ground is not hooked up!!
When would this be acceptable?
Would it ever be acceptable?
