By McCord Pagan Law360 (June 16, 2020)
Fort Lauderdale businesses forced to temporarily close last year when a water main broke and allegedly caused hundreds of millions of dollars in economic damages asked a judge this week to grant class certification in their suit against Florida Power and Light and the contractors they say are responsible.
Lawyers for the Press & Grind cafe, the Riverside Hotel and others asked a Florida state court Monday to grant class certification for businesses forced to shut their doors for a few days last July. The brief shutdown happened after subcontractors working on a project for Florida Power & Light Co. accidentally drilled a hole in a water main that resulted in fresh water being cut off to 200,000 residents, according to court documents.
