Architect awarded at least £400k from neighbours after failed legal spat


'An irrational desire for punishment' often seems to inform ARB cases where disgruntled clients pursue architects in a vindictive manner. The board ought to be mindful (a) that such people exist; (b) that if they haven't been to court their claims should be treated with extreme suspicion; and (c) that architects should not be presumed to be guilty unless they can prove otherwise. That 'irrational desire' sometimes seems to inform ARB's procedures.
