Settlement Reached In Suit Filed By St. Paul Sewer Worker's Family

Star Tribune, by Pat Pheifer

The city of St. Paul and a consulting firm were sued after a worker was swept away during a sudden downpour.

Another victim's family also may file suit.

It was a quiet courtroom Monday when a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the heirs and next-of-kin of Joe Harlow was officially settled.

Attorney Harry Sieben stood alone in the 12th-floor room before Ramsey County District Judge Gregg Johnson as a case involving one of the city's most incomparable tragedies came to a close.

Harlow, 34, was one of two sewer workers swept to his death when a sudden downpour flooded the St. Paul sewer system on July 26, 2007.  Harlow and Dave Yasis, 23, the other victim, were employed by Lametti & Sons of Hugo, which did the actual sewer rehabilitation work.
