    COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 19 /EMWNews/ -- Schottenstein Zox & Dunn Co.,

LPA, (SZD) has successfully prosecuted a claim against the Ohio Department

of Natural Resources for flooding damage to a small business owner.



    Led by Stephen P. Samuels, partner and leader of SZD's Environmental

Practice Group, SZD's trial team obtained a favorable decision for its

client, Case Leasing & Rental, Inc., of Celina, Ohio. The court's decision

found the Department of Natural Resources liable for the destruction of the

client's multi-million dollar business, which was destroyed by flooding of

Grand Lake St. Mary's, a state-owned and managed lake located in Northwest

Ohio.



    SZD's team employed detailed hydrologic and geotechnical analysis to

prove the Department was negligent in the design and operation of the lake

spillway which caused massive flooding in the area.
