Montana Subdivision Residents to Receive $3.45M Settlement

A settlement in a class-action lawsuit filed by residents of three Billings subdivisions was approved Tuesday. Yellowstone County District Judge Gregory Todd approved the $3.45 million settlement to be split by residents of the far West End neighborhoods who claim their homes and their value have been damaged by the negligence of engineers who worked on the developments.

The subdivisions included Copper Ridge, Reflections at Copper Ridge and Falcon Ridge, and the suit names Rimrock Engineering, Rawhide Engineering, and Robert Kukes. 

The case, however, is not closed, the plaintiff’s lead attorney John Heenan said Tuesday. “This money won’t make them (homeowners) anywhere near whole,” he said. “We’ll continue to investigate. Other people have responsibility and we’ll continue to pursue it.”
As many as 661 homeowners remained in the class action suit, after two homeowners opted out, according to court documents.
