The demolition of the ArcelorMittal BOP building in March did more than leave a lasting impression on former steel workers and families. On Tuesday, a 31-page lawsuit was filed in the Hancock County Circuit Court, representing 23 households and 78 residents of Weirton, who are claiming the demolition caused damage to them or their homes. The residents are represented by Michael Nogay, James Sellitti, and Max Nogay of Sellitti, Nogay & Nogay.
