Suit Targets Florida Utility in Water Main Outage

Published in 2020 Florida Super Lawyers Magazine - By Beth Taylor

An attempt by a Florida Power & Light subcontractor to make underground electrical repairs near the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport went wrong last July 17, rupturing a 42-inch water main and leaving many Fort Lauderdale businesses temporarily high and dry.

Now, Miami attorney Adam Moskowitz and Fort Lauderdale lawyers William Scherer at Conrad & Scherer and Cristina Pierson at Kelley Uustal are seeking class action status for a lawsuit against the utility and three of its subcontractors on behalf of all the affected companies.
