State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle


Eleventh Circuit State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle is praising a grand jury investigation of the Champlain Towers South condominium collapse that claimed 98 lives in Surfside in June.

“After listening to numerous building construction experts, evaluative panels and involved individuals, the grand jury came to a strong conclusion – save lives, not just money,” Fernandez Rundle said. “I hope this report provides an effective pathway to do that.”

The 21-member panel conducted a safety review with a goal of preventing another tragedy. The National Institute of Standards and Technology, an arm of the U.S. Department of Commerce, is investigating the cause of the collapse.

The grand jury report refers to an October 13 report by a Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section task force that conducted a similar review, and like the grand jury, recommends numerous changes to the Florida Condominium Act.

The task force, made up of condominium and planned development law practitioners, was appointed to study the tragedy and serve as a legal resource for the governor and lawmakers.
