Contaminated Dirt Triggers Military Housing LawsuitIt started with four plaintiffs, but a judge will decide if families' claims at Kaneohe Marine Corps Base can become a class-action proceeding.
By Ian Lind Honolulu Civil Beat (HI) June 18, 2014·A federal judge in Honolulu will decide next week whether a potential class-action lawsuit against Forest City, the private developer of residential housing at Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kaneohe, can go forward.
Forest City Enterprises, based in Cleveland, entered into a private- public partnership with the U.S. Navy in 2004 to increase the amount of on-base military housing, and to allow the military itself to get out of the housing business. Its partnership, Ohana Military Communities LLC, was then awarded a lucrative 50-year contract to renovate or replace thousands of existing homes and apartments at MCBH, and to serve as the leasing agent for the properties over the extended life of the contract.
A Forest City subsidiary then took over management of eight different neighborhoods on the Kaneohe base, as well as other areas serving both Navy and Marine Corps personnel.
