March 2010
Jones Day represented BFS Diversified Products, LLC in connection with a suit brought by the State of Louisiana and the Louisiana Stadium & Exposition District as a result of the failure of the roof of the Louisiana Superdome during Hurricane Katrina. The membrane covering the roof, which was manufactured by BFS Diversified Products, LLC, a division of Bridgestone Americas, Inc., peeled off during the height of the storm and water penetrated the building.
