First lawsuits filed over Minnesota bridge collapse

The first of what is expected to be many lawsuits stemming from the collapse of a Minnesota freeway bridge, which killed 13 people and injured 150, was filed on Nov. 12. The plaintiffs allege that URS Corp., which was under contract with the Minnesota Department of Transportation to conduct a "fatigue analysis'' of the bridge, failed to take action despite documented bulging and buckling of the bridge.
