Buemi v. Town of Fair

field (Filed January 2013 in Bridgeport): The Town of Fairfield converted a quarry into a recreational area in 1967. A former excavation pit was turned into a lake. Unfortunately over the years 7 people died in the lake because they were unaware that the water level would drop from 1-2 feet to over 30 feet within a few inches. The town developed a plan to warn people of the danger in 1990 but then never implemented the plan. On July 17, 2012, 10 year old Catherine Perez Trujillo died when she walked just a few get into the water during a hike. The sides of the pit gave way and she could not stop from being pulled under. She was found 30-40 feet down at the bottom of the pit. This all occurred in front of her family. This case points out how important it is to hold towns accountable for being irresponsible. catherine was the 8th death–all preventable with simple signage and warning.

How to Use Case Builder

Case Builder contains two helpful categories: cases we are working on now and our past results. Case Builder is a novel concept. Our web designer said we should have this information fixed in a web page. We disagreed—thinking that just like our practice is always changing the case builder should be an ever-changing description of where we are right now—not last month or a year ago.
