Virginia General AssemblyThe Virginia General Assembly passed a statute, HB 797, that expressly permits architects and engineers to enter into contractual limitation of liability clauses.  The ACEC, VSPE, and VSAIA actively pushed to change the statute in the wake of several cases which ruled that previous language in the corporate enabling statute barred limitation of liability clauses for design professionals.  As can be sen from the bill tracking, the measure passed fairly easily in both the House and the Senate.
