    Buildings were literally thrown up in recent years supposedly by "qualified" tradesmen. Maybe in reality the engineers weren't the ones who were negligent at all.

    It was stupid case to bring to court in the first place. She fell over doing a dangerous style of dancing and it is her own fault.

    I know, amazing the BS that is tolerated by our legal system.

    You would take issue with the learned JOHN GLEESON SC then who states in his study:

    “There is a dearth of case law in Ireland relating to negligence claims against
    engineers - less than one page is devoted to professional negligence against
    engineers, architects and surveyors in the last edition of McMahon & Binchy. This
    does not reflect the number of cases in professional negligence against engineers in
    recent times, particularly following the construction boom”

    “Although evidence of general practice may materially assist a court, it is not
    decisive of what is required to discharge the standard of reasonable care.
    That is for the court to decide having regard to the circumstances of the
    particular case.”

    Sounds like making it up as you go along to me but then I am not in the legal profession.

    To draw conclusions about justice in Ireland from one failed civil case is to accord it an importance that it hardly deserves.

    Usually the BS comes from greedy and foolish plaintiffs

    As a man who has been observing the antics of people in clubs and pubs for years I don't have much sympathy for her. .

    Amster; Can you put your shoes back on please
    Dirty Dancer; Why?
    Because you might ,just might step on some broken glass on your way to the bar.

    or

    Amster; Can you get down of the table please ?

    Dirty Dancer;Why ?

    Amster ; Because first of all it not allowed and second of all you might fall and break your neck with those nine inch nails your wearing for shoes.
