Suit yourself

It's been less than a week since a construction crew cut an electrical cable on the North Carolina Outer Banks.
The lawyers are already hard at work.
The lawsuit alleges that PCL claimed it could save $60 million and work on an accelerated schedule to win a contract to replace the Bonner Bridge. It says that power lines were cut during construction work on the bridge, which crosses the Oregon Inlet from Bodie Island to Hatteras Island.
As a result of the cut cable, Hatteras and Ocracoke islands lost power and utility companies have used generators to provide power to the islands. The generators were not enough to provide sustained power to all of both islands, resulting in rolling blackouts. In a news release, Wallace and Graham said “tens of thousands” of residents and tourists have been forced to evacuate the islands since Friday.
Let's see the lawyers work through the night to build something.
