On the architect's or engineer's becoming insolvent1 all money owing to him becomes the property of his trustee in bankruptcy, to whom pass also the bankrupt's rights of action for breach of contract and wrongful dismissal2. If, however, the trustee does not intervene, the bankrupt can himself sue for work done after the bankruptcy3.
If the architect or engineer is employed on the terms of being paid a salary, his remuneration does not vest in the trustee in bankruptcy, unless an order is made by the court
