September 10 2013: ”Arbitrator: Diocese Needs $49M to Replace Massachusetts School”

The Springfield MA Catholic Diocese suffered extensive damage to its school and other facilities resulting from the devastating tornado that tore through Western MA in June 2011. When ASSIST learned the Diocese was battling its insurance company to receive the insurance payment it believed was required to rebuild, we provided before and after still and real-time imagery to support the lawsuit. The Boston Herald has reported that the diocese has won a $49M settlement (instead of $15M). We are pleased to have played a small part in this success story. See our video footage of the Springfield Tornado path of destruction here.
