BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) -- A hearing in the Bresette family lawsuit was abruptly canceled after KPS Group withdrew their motion to block a subpoena of information.
According to court documents, the Bresette family attorneys filed a motion of attempt to serve a subpoena on LBYD Engineering on June 12th. KPS Group, the lead architectural firm working on the airport renovation project, hired LBYD Engineering after the display board collapsed on March 22nd. LBYD Engineering was tasked with designing a method for securing the display boards to the wall after the collapse of the display board that killed Luke Bresette and injured his family.
KPS Group filed a motion to block this subpoena of information from LBYD on June 24th, saying the information is privileged and irrelevant to the case.
Jefferson County Judge Tom King was slated to hear arguments from KPS Group attorneys regarding their motion to block the subpoena Tuesday morning. Bresette family attorneys made plans to attend the public hearing as well.
At 4 pm Monday, KPS Group withdrew their motion to block the subpoena, and the hearing was cancelled. This means information about LBYD Engineering's plans to improve the safety of the display boards by securing them to the walls will be released.
The Birmingham Airport Authority also filed a motion to block a subpoena of information but later agreed to cooperate with the Bresette family attorneys' requests.
Attorneys expect more information on court proceedings to be decided early next week.
