59 Plaintiffs v. Schomburg Plaza Housing Complex Verdict & Settlement

Dansker & Aspromonte represented multiple tenants of the infamous and deadly Schomburg Plaza fire in the late 80’s. A fire started in a jammed compactor chute on the 20th Floor of the high rise apartment building. The sprinkler system was not operational and because of defective materials and workmanship, the fire and smoke escaped through the walls into the apartments. When the fire dept arrived they went to the basement where they put out a small fire but did not even realize that a bigger fire was raging on the 20th floor until it was too late to prevent injury and death to many residents.
