Miami Herald Talks With Steve Solow about Criminal Charges for Construction Disasters

Firm News | August 15, 2018

Steve Solow, head of the Washington, DC office White Collar, Investigations and Compliance practice, spoke with the Miami Herald about determining criminal liability following the FIU bridge collapse in which six people died. Steve stated, "Prosecutors will want to know if and when concerns [about the integrity of the bridge] were raised— and if they were raised with the urgency that demanded immediate action." He noted that once the NTSB finishes its analysis, prosecutors will need to consult with outside experts to determine whether the response to the cracks in the bridge were reasonable in deciding whether to pursue criminal charges. "Prosecutors are going to want to talk to experts and learn the industry standards." ("Why Florida Law May Shield Companies Behind Deadly FIU Bridge From Criminal Charges," August 14, 2018)
