Update: Collapsed Florida condo was part of 2015 maintenance lawsuit where a resident complained the outer walls weren't being properly maintained



A resident of the Florida condominium that partially collapsed on Thursday filed a lawsuit in 2015 alleging that one of the building's outer walls was not being maintained properly, court records showed.


In 2015, Matilde Fainstein filed for damages in the Miami-Dade Circuit Court, saying the building's owners "failed to repair or negligently repaired the common elements and the outside walls of the building."


The previous year, water had started coming in through cracks in the outer wall to Fainstein's terrace, causing damage, the complaint said. The filing said she had previously taken the same issue to court, where the building's owners were found liable.
