    You said "contracted".

    Force the agreement in a court of law.

    Do you have a signed contract?

    Did he agree to do it or did he agree to look at it and see if it is doable?

    Did he give you a price to do it?

    Did you pay him anything?

    Yes you can sue him and he can counter sue you.

    Yes, you can sue anyone for anything.  Happy?

    No, because he is no more as a licensed engineer after his retirement, that prevent him from doing public engineering work, because he is no more qualified to sign any engineering document.

      Nobody is talking about public engineering or even what type of project he's been asked to do.  A retired engineer mows my lawn and I didn't ask him for any license.

    No need to sue, but if his refusal violates the contract, then he is fired/dismissed/whatever. And even after that, a lawsuit may still be warranted to obtain a settlement for any other losses caused by the failure of the engineer to fulfill the contract.

    Hmm, the breech of contract was placing a heater in a cold room didn't produce a tornado. How do you know? Did you do a smoke test to check for a vortex? Perhaps you were expecting an EF3 tornado. Was the level of a vortex in the contract?

    My guess is the guy was exasperated by your limited knowledge.

    You sue for damages. So if you lost out financially yes you can sue for that amount. But being annoyed is not something you can successfully sue for.

    Did you pay him?  Do you have the agreement in writing?  Then yes, you can sue.  Them being 'mean' isn't germane to your question and raises the question how much of a pain in the *** client you may have been.

    read your contract!! or have a lawyer do it and then they'll tell you if you have grounds to sue.
