PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The criminal trial of Griffin Campbell in Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, which concluded today with a split verdict, focused solely on the responsibility of one person in causing the June 5, 2013 fatal collapse. As the testimony in the trial established, however, this collapse was caused by the actions and inactions of many people and companies. There was an avalanche of evidence introduced at the trial that the Salvation Army Thrift Store building being demolished was "imminently dangerous" by at least Sunday June 2, 2013, three days before the collapse. My trial team looks forward to the civil trial, now scheduled to begin in September 2016, where a jury, for the first time, will hear evidence regarding the responsibility of all the companies and people who caused this collapse.
