On May 22, 2020, the we filed a complaint against gainst Boyce Hydro Power, LLC, Boyce Hydro, LLC, Boyce Michigan, LLC, and Edenville Hydro Property, LLC, who owned, operated, and/or maintained the Sanford and Edenville Dams situated on the Tittabawassee River in the state of Michigan.
Just days prior, on May 19, 2020, the Edenville Dam collapsed, resulting in massive flooding to spill out towards Midland, Michigan, leaving tens of thousands forced to evacuate as their homes became submerged in water. The homes directly surrounding Wixom Lake, once beautiful lakeside properties, now abut a barren mud pit. Over 10,000 people in Midland County have found themselves displaced—their surrounding homes under water or severely damaged.
This lawsuit, filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, on behalf of residential property owners directly impacted by Defendants’ conduct, includes claims for negligence, nuisance, and trespass.
This case is entitled Cable et al v. Boyce Hydro Power, LLC et al., Case No. 1:20-cv-11293 (Eastern District of Michigan)

Q:What is a Class Action?
In a class action lawsuit, one or more people, called the “class representatives,” sue on behalf of themselves and other people who have similar claims. Together, this group of people is called a “class” or “class members.” The class representative and the class members together are called the “Plaintiffs.” The companies they sue are called the “Defendants.” The judge or jury resolves the claims for everyone in the class—except those who ask to be excluded from the lawsuit.
