Columbia County, GA (WJBF) – Several families who filed a lawsuit against Marshall Square after going up in flames in June of 2015, can close this chapter of their lives.
Augusta attorney Sam Nicholson, who represents several of the residents, tells NewsChannel 6 many of those property damage cases were resolved Thursday afternoon. The case against the owners of Marshall Square started as a class action lawsuit filed by the people living at the retirement village. Nicholson tells us, the case changed somewhat and ended up as several lawsuits with several different plantiffs.
Marshall square lawsuits are far from over, there are still more property damage cases to resolve since there is no longer class action status. There is a lawsuit also filed by Rheta Cadle who was rescued from the fire and a suit filed by the family of Dorothy Carpenter, who died in the fire.
