Fowkes Rodkey has filed suit on behalf of a former tenant at the supposedly “green” Century Building in downtown Pittsburgh after management. As reported in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Century Building is held out as a “gold” rated property under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design “LEED” system. However, as set forth in the Complaint filed in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas in May 2011, building management has permitted “uncontrolled and pervasive smoking”. Smoking is a violation of lease covenants. The lawyers at Fowkes Rodkey have a wide range of experience in residential and commercial landlord tenant and real property law issues.

The lawyers at Fowkes Rodkey note that from a legal perspective, these types of unfortunate and tragic accidents highlight the need for early involvement of counsel to obtain access to the accident site to preserve what could be critical evidence. Sometimes counsel must go so far as to seek a court order in order to gain access to evidence and have evidence preserved in order to protect the rights of the injured.
