Trial set after bricks fell on West Palm office

Trial set after bricks fell on West Palm office

The trial is scheduled Monday after bricks fell into a lawyer's downtown West Palm Beach office more than two years ago.

At William Price's law office on Fern Street in downtown West Palm Beach, there is still a sign up that says they are temporarily in a different location.

That's after bricks from the wall of the Alexander Lofts came crashing down in March 2016.

It's hard to forget those images, when thousands of pounds of bricks rained down into the building.

Several people were injured and taken to the hospital.

The city said rusted metal rods were to blame.

The law office is suing the owner of the Alexander Lofts, RAM Realty, for negligence.

Jury selection begins around 10 a.m. Monday with opening statements expected in the afternoon.

The trial could last about six days.
