These are the names of  members of the Oregon State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying who have been named as defendants in a recent law suit filed by MATS JÄRLSTRÖM.

As we previously reported,  a guild of individuals, protecting their turf with the anachronistic cover of Oregon State government, has been caught in a ridiculous overreach of authority (see previous articles: Idiot Government Oregon State Idea of Engineering Is Not Keeping Up With The Times and Idiot Government - Revisited).

Mr. Jarlstrom who had the best interests of serving the public by communicating his technical feedback to Oregon State government, regarding deficiencies in traffic light operations, was fined $500 by the  Oregon State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying by referring to himself using the word "engineer" in his letter.

Mr. Jarlstrom did not take this ridiculous government action lying down and filed a law suit in Federal Court, for violation of his civil rights under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Mr. Jarlstrom's attorneys SCHWABE, WILLIAMSON & WYATT P.C. filed the law suit on December 4th 2017 with legal backing from the INSTITUTE FOR JUSTICE. In spite of Oregon State petition to dismiss the case, judge STACIE F. BECKERMAN instructed the case to be admitted on December 12th 2017.

Apparently, Oregon State government is more concerned about choice of words in what could be a private letter from a concerned citizen, than correcting any material suggestion from the public.

Oregon State government, backing up the narrow interests of a guild that by definition, was established to limit competition and secure the financial interests of its members, went well beyond serving the public interest. The latest overreach by the Oregon State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying, exposes the ridiculous anachronism that governs how the state is trying to curb engineering-related occupations. Many new engineering-related occupations became prevalent during the last two centuries, including electronics and software engineering that the board has no place to regulate or intervene with. The board should either be disbanded or stick to old engineering-occupations that it was able to corral in the 19th century.

The outcome of this upcoming court proceedings and the resulting judgement will either send the State of Oregon back to the days of the fur trappers economy or pave the way to a technology-based future.
