A Midwest law firm is hoping to win farmers millions of dollars. They are still looking for clients, farmers who have suffered because of the floods.
Eddie Smith is with Polsinelli Law Firm out of Kansas City. He and his partner met with farmers in Blair on Thursday. They are reaching out to people, giving them information needed to decide if they want to join their mass action lawsuit against the Army Corps of Engineers.
"At the heart of our case is the belief that, and the allegation is going to be, that the Army Corps of Engineers changed how they managed the Missouri River waters,” said Smith. And as a result, caused flooding that wouldn't have happened otherwise.
The lawsuit spans five states and flooding that goes back to 2007 in some areas.
