However, when you look at the condition of those ditches prior to the rains, you see that they were not being maintained and even according to Adler, the maintaining of the ditch is his responsibility. Ever hear, "preventive maintenance"?
He's on here trying to blame a law firm taking this action based on politics and I'm calling BS. Law firms don't typically take on such issues unless a controlling partner wants to spend a fortune of his resources "getting even". In the article, Adler mentions an attorney who is only on staff and isn't even a partner.
These cases came from private citizens and if they win, the firm will get a juicy cut. Not from revenge. From good knowledge of the law.
