Surfside families still want answers despite settlement

Family members of some of the 98 people killed in a Florida condominium collapse last June say they are too deep in mourning to contemplate the nearly $1 billion settlement their attorneys negotiated on their behalf. Families and local officials gathered Thursday at the vacant lot where Champlain Towers South once stood for the unveiling of temporary banners adorned with the victims’ names and ages. The ceremony came a day after the surprise announcement that the settlement had been reached in the families’ lawsuit. The 12-story beachside building partially collapsed in the early morning hours of June 24.
