Company sue following Freedom Tower fakeries

A company currently standing accused of faking tests on concrete and steel used at ground zero’s Freedom Tower, among over 100 projects, is suing New York City to regain its licenses following their suspension.

Testwell Laboratories had their licenses suspended following their indictment in October on corruption charges but their action to sue is based on the premise that the charge has not yet been proven and it is therefore ‘unlawful’ to revoke their licenses. The Department of Buildings, however, according to the New York Times stated in court papers that, “the mere existence of criminal charges is sufficient for suspension.”

The Department of Buildings is unclear on which other buildings have been affected by the alleged bogus test results and are currently investigating.
