ConstructionDive quoted Attorney Neil Brunetz in “Hard Rock Hotel Project Collapse Sparks New Investigation“, which explores a number of different claims that have emerged from the investigation, that may have contributed to the building collapsing. Neil stresses how important it is that none of the evidence is disturbed or contaminated, in the case that OSHA or the Department of Safety and Permits may need to evaluate it at a later time. Additionally, Neil discusses his opinion on if hearings pertaining to the collapse would impede the investigation.
“Is it possible they could interfere? Yes,” said attorney Neil Brunetz, who specializes in OSHA cases at the law firm of Drew Eckl and Farnham in Atlanta. “Is it likely? No. Based on the latter from the mayor … and OIG’s office, it appears the situation is in the correct hands for investigation.”Neil Brunetz
