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.
