Settlement reached in lawsuit over runway overrun collapse

Source: https://www.herald-dispatch.com, April 24, 2019
A settlement has been reached in a lawsuit over the 2015 landslide that collapsed a runway safety overrun at Yeager Airport.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports Yeager officials say the airport was awarded $14.8 million in the settlement that ends all legal wrangling stemming from the collapse. Of that, about $6 million will go for fees and reimbursements, leaving the airport with about $8.3 million.
Following the collapse, Yeager Airport filed suit against 15 construction, engineering, design, insurance and supply firms involved with building the 240-foot-high earthen structure supporting the safety overrun area. No one was injured in the collapse.
Yeager board Chairman Ed Hill said the settlement vindicates the airport of any wrongdoing.
