From the Daily News:
A group of Queens residents whose homes were ruined during the 2007 floods have slapped the city with a class action lawsuit saying it failed to properly maintain its sewer system.
The August 2007 downpour sent rainwater and untreated sewage into scores of homes, including Bruce Saffran's Forest Hills apartment.
He estimates he lost more than $80,000 in the flood.
More than a dozen people have signed onto the lawsuit, which is potentially open to hundreds of flood victims.
