McFarland Apartments has 60 days to reach an agreement with its insurance company to pay for the cleanup of a wall that collapsed more than two years ago.
In Dauphin County Court on Monday, McFarland Apartments’ lawyers used language in their brief that shows the company trespassed on Howard Tire and Auto property when one of its walls collapsed on May 5, 2016.
McFarland was ordered to stabilize the apartment still standing near the property. Engineer reports show the building has the potential to collapse.
The legal drama is far from over. McFarland and the defendants still have to settle the second part of the lawsuit, which is all about monetary damages, not the trespassing and cleanup.
The judge placed at a gag order on all parties involved for five days.
