Bklink: Loophole

"The city has used a brand new law to ban a rogue engineer for faking construction plans - but a loophole in Buildings Department rules let the alleged mastermind off scot-free. The Buildings Department barred licensed engineer Leon St. Clair Nation from city work on Jan 15...In trying to go after higher-ups in the scheme, the department claimed expediter Hershy Fekete showed building owners how to save time and money by fudging plans, then hired Nation to rubber-stamp them." DOB has no rules governing expediters, however, so he was not cited. The problem involved fake photos of two building and doctored plans of a third one.--NYDN
