August Matteis, the Partner of Weissbrod, Matteis and Copley has alleged the following in a federal complaint:

 

“The lawsuit accuses FEMA of retaining staff for the review process who were involved in the original, tainted adjustment of Sandy flood claims, and of making exorbitant payments to unqualified contractors with ties to FEMA officials to administer the SCR.”

 

“FEMA has lied to it’s policyholders”.

 

“uncovered significant evidence of misconduct…. that led to the improper denial or underpayment of many Sandy Flood Claims”

 

“The Sandy Claim Review has become a boondoggle designed to overpay FEMA’s contractors while continuing deliberately to underpay homeowners”

 

“Less than 150 of their 1,200 Sandy clients has resolved their claims, despite FEMA’s promise to resolve all the claims in 90 days”

 

“FEMA’s misconduct has resulted in “aggregated payments of more than $500 million to FEMA contractors while homeowners received less than $200 million during the same time.”

 

“For over a year FEMA has ignored WMC’s request for Sandy Claims Review documents under the Freedom of Information Act”

 

“The lawsuit accuses FEMA of retaining staff for the review process who were involved in the original, tainted adjustment of Sandy flood claims, and of making exorbitant payments to unqualified contractors with ties to FEMA officials to administer the SCR.”

A little background on Mr. Matteis and his law firm.  He is a pitbull, once he commits to something… he will not let go..

 

He took on a $250,000 Flood/Wind Insurance case from Katrina, in Mississippi,  and litigated it for over a decade.  All the way to the Supreme Court….. And Won!

 

I have a feeling we will be hearing much more on this is the future.  Stay tuned.
