Broward Judge Grants Class Certification in Lawsuit Against FPL
A ruling by a Broward judge could be bad news for Florida Power & Light, which faced litigation over a 2019 water main break.
Broward Circuit Judge William Haury granted a motion for class certification in the case in which a subcontractor of the Florida-based utility company allegedly bore a six-inch hole into a 42-inch major water main pipe at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport.
“This is thousands of businesses that lost the ability to do business for a couple of days and a weekend because of an unnecessary incident when the gross negligence of these contractors ruptured the water main in July of 2019.” - Cristina Pierson, Kelley | Uustal
