HOUSTON, Nov. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Fleming, Nolen & Jez is proud to announce that Rand Nolen has been appointed as Co-Lead Counsel for the homeowners and businesses that suffered flooding in Hurricane Harvey as a result of the release of waters from the Addicks and Barker reservoirs.
Fleming, Nolen & Jez partner Rand Nolen.
This is the latest step in what will likely be a complex legal battle that will ultimately determine what compensation those affected by the floodwaters will receive from the government for the property that was lost or damaged. As of right now, more than 1,000 home and business owners have filed federal lawsuits seeking damages exceeding $100 million, but the number of claimants, as well as the amount of money sought, is expected to grow.
The complaints are split into two separate groups based on whether their property was upstream or downstream. Rand is working with clients downstream, whose cases allege that the Army Corps’ decision to release water through the dam gates caused the Buffalo Bayou to rise and flood their neighborhoods.
Rand said he is “honored to have been appointed” by the federal court, and added, “Thousands of Houstonians lost everything they owned when the government decided to flood their neighborhoods. I know that this litigation is vitally important to so many of my fellow citizens. My firm and I are proud to represent these folks. We witnessed the devastation suffered by our friends and neighbors, and we will work hard to see that they receive the just compensation guaranteed to all Americans by the Fifth Amendment to The United States Constitution.”
