Third Runway Lawsuit

Update:  Property Owners Must File Individual Claims

On April 9, 2012, the Court denied class certification for three of our clients who sought permission to represent all home owners who have lost property value due to the Third Runway in a single class action lawsuit.  The Court ruled that diminished property value, like that suffered by our clients, was too specific to each individual home and each homeowner for the lawsuit to be grouped together in a class action.   The ruling means that thousands of homeowners affected by the Third Runway’s increased air traffic must each file individual lawsuits if they hope to recover for damage caused by the Third Runway.

300+ Individuals File Claims Against the Port of Seattle for the Third Runway

We now represent more than 300 people who have filed administrative claims against the Port of Seattle for damages they suffered as a result of the Third Runway.  In mid-November, we filed “tort claims” with the Port of Seattle on behalf of those 300+ individuals, which is the first step in filing a lawsuit against the Port for those damages.

If you are a property owner who has suffered damages because of the Third Runway’s operations, please call us at 1-855-3RUNWAY (1-855-378-6929) to learn your options.  You can also fill-out the form below and an email will be sent to the team working on the Third Runway cases.

A Brief Description of the Issue:

The use of the internet or this form to communicate with PCVA or any individual member of the firm does not establish an attorney-client relationship. By using this form, you agree that you are not expecting to receive legal advice from PCVA, you are not relying on PCVA to provide you with legal advice, and that no attorney-client relationship exists until an attorney from our firm has affirmatively indicated that we will represent you. Finally, every case is governed by a statute of limitations, which means it must be filed within a certain amount of time after the event giving rise to liability, so time-sensitive information should not be sent through this form.
