Woman sues over NYC pipe explosion

Yeah, you read that right. The pipe that just burst last week in NYC and freaked a bunch of people out.... read this and tell me if you think this should even be heard in court.



MELVILLE, N.Y. - A woman whose sister died in the Sept. 11 attacks filed a lawsuit over last week's steam pipe eruption in Manhattan, saying Tuesday that the explosion brought back horrible memories.
ADVERTISEMENT

Francine Dorf's lawsuit accuses Consolidated Edison of negligence, saying the utility didn't properly maintain the pipe that ruptured outside her office and sent a geyser of steam, mud and asbestos-tainted debris over the neighborhood near Grand Central Terminal.

"I thought a building was going to collapse," said Dorf, 52, a legal secretary. She is seeking unspecified damages.

Dorf's attorney, Kenneth Mollins, said Dorf suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and "a legacy of fear" from the 2001 attacks. He said the lawsuit is intended to force Con Ed to improve maintenance of its infrastructure.

Her sister, Maria La Vache, was an employee of insurer Marsh & McLennan and was on the 99th floor of the north tower of the World Trade Center when it collapsed. Her body was never recovered.

Dorf said she called her brother and mother after the steam pipe rupture last Wednesday to say goodbye.

"I can't sleep, I can't eat. If I lay down I can see the smoke," she said. "And I think of my sister over and over again. What she must have went through on 9/11."

A Con Ed spokesman said the utility does not comment on pending litigation.

How ridiculous is that? So now we have been pussified so much we are suing people over fear? You're afraid, so they owe you money now? No wonder [George Bush voice] "terrorist are rampant" [/George Bush voice] it's easy business apparently! if I wanted to live with a nation of pu$$ies, I'd move to Canada!

I'm suing you too over that Canada remark, because I am offended because my friend is from Canada, and I'm afraid you've now made him a pu$$y to me.

Canada is full of tasty Canadians. Everybody knows the evil alien invaders will eat them first. Might as well stay here where it's safe.

I save all my left over fast food condiments and ship them to random addresses in Canada. I'm sure the alien overlords will appreciate some ketchup and hot sauce when they arrive. I encourage all of you to do the same.

Trust me that lawyer is not working for free, and the way I see it, if I'm an attourney making $300+ per hour.. I'll sue the gov't to say the sky is purple as long as you pay your bill.

Bad thing is she probably already got a load of cash from the government for her sisters death. World would be a better place without greedy people and greedy lawyers.
