Negligence liability is a rapidly increasing area of concern for software engineers and designers. The implications of negligence are sufficiently severe that most companies can no longer ignore the legal consequences of engineering design decisions [1][2]. As engineers and industry participants, it is our duty to balance the interests of public safety against our own profits. This paper continues previous work [3] toward a comprehensive software process augmented to include preliminary legal tasks and milestones.
