A company in Mississippi is claiming, in an apparent attempt at inspector lawfare, that the processes that some inspectors use for infrared inspection are patented. Sensing a chance to make a buck without working for it (the New American Dream), they have initiated legal action. Would seem to be a joke except even as a nuisance, the inspector involved will have to defend the suit. Pretty much what everybody in the industry needs is friendly fire. Energy raters should be scared though; if this attempt at inspector lawfare stands, their businesses will be severely impacted.
I liked the picture John Poole of Birmingham Point shared on Facebook the other day.
