    Should have been suing the fucking construction contractors who built the homes and cut corners, to increase the profit margin.

    Well, if their homes are falling apart I don’t blame them. It’s just that someone needs to hold the contractors accountable, like someone else said. Shit, the fucking douches who built my house didn’t put any stucco on the chimney. They do all kinds of shady shit like that.

    I still don't get why people think it's a good idea rebuilding in a coastal plain that's below sea level after a huge disaster like that.

    I work in the industry.

    The plaintiff will typically sue all parties involved and see what sticks. Depending on the contract, one or many of the stakeholders/contractors/surety companies who are liable will end up paying. They just publicize the celebrity in the news because it’s more sexy.

    Moral of the story: You won't get sued if you don't try to help.

    You hear that Puerto Rico?

    "The lawsuit goes on to allege that Make It Right presented homeowners with nondisclosure agreements and documents binding them to arbitration before agreeing to make repairs. Make It Right failed to explain these documents to the homeowners, according to the complaint, thereby “fraudulently” obtaining signatures “on agreements that would deprive homeowners of important legal rights while the homeowners are under duress.” The lawsuit alleges that the nondisclosure forms were required after a spate of negative news coverage."

    That's not their job. I'm not saying it's right, but clearly the homeowners in this case didn't:

    A. Read the documents properly before signing.
    B. Do their due diligence in having the documents explained to them, by a third party (ie: their own attorney).

    109 homes built thus far, only two involved with this suit. Law of averages.

    Brad: “We’re going to do the right thing, give back, and become the change we want to see in the world....Of course, since we’re doing everybody such a massive favor, there’s no reason to use the highest quality materials, and the most experienced construction workers.”

    People like Brad Pitt are always being sued. It comes with the territory.

    If we had just let the Dutch build New Orleans instead of the goddamn French all of this could have been avoided.
