On June 5, a building collapsed on a Salvation Army store in Philadelphia, leaving six people dead and 13 injured. According to NBC 10 Philadelphia, personal injury lawyers representing the family of 24-year-old Mary Simpson, one of the deceased, announced on September 3 that they plan to file a wrongful death lawsuit, and that more will likely follow.
The lawsuit is "expected to name developer Richard Basciano, his company STB Investments, The Salvation Army, contractor Griffin Campbell, construction expediter Plato Marinakos and excavator operator Sean Benschop a.k.a. Kary Roberts" as defendants, states the source.
In the meantime, the news outlet reports that there is a criminal case in progress, as law enforcement officials believe that Roberts "was high on marijuana and prescription pain killers" at the time.
