Hard Rock Hotel Collapse Evacuation Class Action Lawsuit Investigation

Sauder Schelkopf is investigating a class action lawsuit on behalf of businesses and individuals who were financially impacted by the Hard Rock Hotel collapse in New Orleans on October 12, 2019. Because of the threat of a collapse, city officials expanded the evacuated area days after the partial collapse.

As reported by the Washington Post on Oct. 20, 2019:

For days, the structures swayed precariously over the site, raising fears that they could topple in any direction and cause further damage. One crane stood about 270 feet, the other about 300 feet. Both had long boom arms that could be seen extending out over the wreckage.

After consulting with demolition experts, city officials on Thursday announced plans to attach explosive charges to the towers. The goal was to detonate them in a precise sequence that would send the structures cascading into the footprint of the building without damaging surrounding streets or other infrastructure in the area, NOLA.com reported.
