  1. This is a great example of the court’s recognition of the advances made in fire science since publication of NFPA 921. However, the defendant is not “off the hook” yet. The case will be re-examined in further proceedings.
    This is interesting to me as well, because my father was a circuit judge in DuPage county, IL. I’m pretty familiar with their judicial system, including the politics.
