“In re Tropicana Parking Garage Collapse Litig., N.J., Atlantic Co. Super., No. ATL-L-1551-04, July 29, 2007”
“Competition in the Atlantic City, New Jersey, casino world is fierce. So when Tropicana Casino and Resort wanted to expand its property to add a new hotel, retail center, and parking garage, it had to move fast to complete the project before another casino finished its own renovation. Unfortunately, the workers building the parking garage did not know that it was not being constructed in accordance with the design. Nor did they know when they left for work one morning in October 2003, that within hours, four of them would be dead and many more would be severely injured. … AAJ members … V. Paul Bucci … felt compelled to help the workers…. [T]he attorneys decided to join forces and create a litigation group to combat the many defendants involved. …[I]n April 2007, two months before trial was to begin, the parties reached a global settlement with a total value of $101 million.”
