As a Juror on the trial, don't believe what you read. Mismanagement and bad decisions by county are main factor to issues. The county would have lost.
thanks for your juror's perspective. from an engineer's perspective, without the benefit of witnessing the trial, I see all parties at fault. KCE's report made that pretty clear to me (even though IMHO KCE went easy on the county's mismanagement). However, after the cracks became public, all the way to the trial, all we got from the media was the county's perspective. Insurance companies and their lawyers have a big impact on how these issues are settled. IMHO the settlement is about money, not who is to blame.
