City of Rocky Mount, NC

In 2000, a house fire on Arlington Street left seven people dead. Family members of the deceased filed a lawsuit against the city and homeowner Farouk Hamad, claiming they were liable for the deaths because they didn't require and ensure that the residence was equipped with smoke detectors. Rocky Mount has agreed to pay a $3 million settlement. Hamad has agreed to pay $250,000 and hand over deeds to seven pieces of property in Rocky Mount. (May-25-06) [ROCKY MOUNT TELEGRAM]
