PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jury selection is set to begin in a trial determining who should pay the victims of a deadly 2013 building collapse in Philadelphia.
The consolidated lawsuits were filed on behalf of the six people killed and 13 injured when an unbraced four-story brick wall collapsed on an adjacent Salvation Army thrift store.
About 120 potential jurors are to be interviewed Tuesday.
Those selected will determine if negligence by any defendant contributed to the collapse. If they find one or more defendants liable, they'll decide on damages.
The plaintiffs are suing a New York real estate speculator; the Salvation Army; an architect; a demolition contractor; and the man hired to use his excavator to expedite demolition.
Lawyers tell the Philadelphia Inquirer jury selection could take weeks.
