Saturday, March 31, 2018  
Passed last year with a push from design professional organizations including SEAOC, SB 496 (Cannella) set reasonable limits on the design professional’s duty to defend other parties in contract disputes. The provisions of bill took effect on Jan. 1, 2018. SEAOC invites its members to use this SB 496 Advisory Letter co-signed by SEAOC to educate clients and other parties about the new law.
