The San Diego Union Tribune quotes Evan W. Walker on Escondido flooding
A report on the incident filed by Escondido Fire Capt. Derek Chapman confirmed that runoff from the excessive rain breached the holding pond and flooded three homes.
Evan Walker, an attorney for Surcharda’s in-laws Ellen and Ron Ewertz — who own the Vista Avenue home — said the courts may have to ultimately figure out what happened.
“We’re trying to figure out who is really responsible here and we may not know until we file suit and have flushed it out that way,” said Walker, who specializes in flood litigation. He said he doesn’t yet know if the city will be included in the list of defendants.
