Hard Rock Hotel Demolition Facing Delays Due To Lawsuits

US-HOTEL-CONSTRUCTION-ACCIDENT

City officials say the demolition of what's left of the Hard Rock Hotel is on hold as attorneys continue to gather evidence for lawsuits.

The site's developer spoke yesterday about the delay saying there is a court injunction in place which is prohibiting any demolition work at the hotel.

The developer also said there is still an ongoing investigation working to determine what caused the collapse to happen.

New Orleans Fire Chief Tim McConnell recently updated a demolition timeline showing the debris may not be completely removed before the end of 2020.
