The litigious profession of architecture

Profit within architects' fees hardly covers the cost of liability insurance, over the 20 years following a project. A public building is an arena for almost any accident or problem, and almost always the architect is named in the lawsuit. Here's a good one:

“The mother of accused serial killer Maury Travis, whose bizarre hanging death in the St. Louis County Justice Center was ruled a suicide, filed a suit Friday against the county, the architects who designed the jail and the contractors who built it.” Authorities believe Travis committed as many as twenty murders; he hanged himself in his prison cell after leaving a note. (Peter Shinkle, “Mother of accused serial killer sues over death in jail”, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, May 15th.
