Default Master Inspector Certification Board settles lawsuit.

The Master Inspector Certification Board has settled a lawsuit it brought against an inspector in Colorado. The inspector was using the trademarks Certified Master Inspector and the Certified Master Inspector logo on his website even though he had not earned the Certified Master Inspector designation. The settlement requires the inspector to pay a portion of the MICB’s attorney’s fees. The MICB will continue to vigorously protect its trademarks and the prestige associated with the CMI designation.

Thanks, Nick.


I am grateful for the 13 years you have allowed me to represent InterNACHI and then then MICB. It is a privilege. Hopefully CMI imposters will think twice if they know they are going to end up paying the MICB's legal fees.

What was he thinking? Did he really think he would get away with claiming to be a CMI?

Yes. There is an inspector in my area claiming to be InterNACHI certified and is not for many years now.

We can sue him too. It's like stomping on roaches. Kill one, another one comes out.
