Class Action Status Denied

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

In an earlier posting, I wrote of a lawsuit filed by Gulf Coast residents concerning their FEMA-provided housing. Today, the Court ruled that the varying nature of the claims would disqualify them for class action consideration, making it impossible for them to be consolidated. Once again, effective disaster preparedness and recovery programs provide more certain outcomes than post-disaster litigation. It appears that many of these claims will move forward on an individual basis.
