Joplin Woman Sues Home Depot

A Joplin woman whose husband and two children were killed in the May 2011 tornado that destroyed much of the community is suing the big-box store where they died. Edie Howard Housel's federal wrongful death suit against Home Depot claims her husband, Russell Howard, and their two children were killed when the building's tilt-up concrete walls fell. Nine people died in the store, which she says was built in an unsafe manner. Home Depot's lawyers say the whole situation was an act of God, and they're not liable.
