I'll be running THHN through EMT to the branch panel, and I was wondering if
I could run a bare copper grounding conductor outside of the conduit? I
have a solid ground wire on hand (free), but I'd rather not pull it through
IMHO, since not your electrician:
Some might suggest you omit the equipment grounding conductor, since
you are using emt, but I find it safer to include it. Just make sure
your ground wire is sized properly, per codes.
Also, check with your local codes, even though you don't have to route
a ground wire, since emt, your local codes might have more restrictive

This confused me too at first, but I think he means that the inspector
failed to tell the buyer that there was something wrong, that the
inspector had a duty to notice. And the buyer bought. So the
inspector, maybe via his insurance, had to pay for the repair.
