The US Army corps have received over 400,000 claims and they are still coming in.
Hurricane Katrina's victims have put a price on the devastating damage of the storm. This was the worst storm in US History. The total amount of all 489,000 plaintiffs is $3 quadrillion dollars.
This is an inconceivable amount of money. There is much room for negotiation.
The victims of Katrina are suing the Federal Government for not adequately repairing or testing the levees before they devastatingly failed on August 25th, 2005.
