Study each of the following cases carefully. Briefly state the principle of law and your decision.
Liability of Architects During construction at Alma College, an inadequately reinforced wall of an excavation caved in and killed Clark, a worker employed by Beard, the general contractor. The contract between the architect, Sarvis, and Beard provided that Sarvis had supervisory authority over the construction and thus had the responsibility for the safety of all workers at the site. The administrator of Clark’s estate brought suit against Sarvis, charging negligence. Will a suit against the architect succeed? [ Swarthout v. Beard, 190 N.W.2d 373 (Michigan)]
