The same day Joe Ferry came to Toronto to give this Law and Disorder Seminar, another inspector was in court battling a suit.
The plaintiff had “pictures” and a lawyer. Basically they wanted money from the inspector. Inspection was done 15 months previous.
R has gone to try to help the plaintiff and show him where he had done a proper inspection and pointed out the items in his report.
In court the judge looked at all the items listed and compared it to the report and dismissed the entire claim. He then advised the inspector he was awarding him $500 in costs from the plaintiff. I wonder how the plaintiff will feel about that and even more how he will feel when he receives his lawyers bill??? Now if we had lawyers that would respond with the type of information that we received in Joe's course, this may have saved everyone time and worry. If you can get to one of Joe's courses, get there fast.
And Joe was talking about getting this information to the lawyers for our insurance companies. WE need this and fast.
Congratulations to an inspector who did such a good job.
