Would the persistent predatory behaviour of Prometheus that you describe here and in your previous articles be punishable under the federal and state RICO statutes?

What a horrid company.
The MV Council should ban them from the city.

Why are you so certain that Prometheus is to blame? It sounds like their contractor did shoddy work, and perhaps THEY should be held accountable. Prometheus is a well-reputed company in the area. I would not be surprised (I dont know this for a fact, but it is not unrealistic) if the contractors were required by various government regs to halt work once asbestos was mentioned, thereby leaving the residents belongings exposed to the elements.
Many old buildings like the Americana have asbestos in the roofs. My understanding is that it is considered safe if not disturbed.
Im not suggesting that Prometheus is beyond any responsibility here, but I think that the editorial is unfair and too quick to place blame before all the facts are in. Someone screwed up, and the tenants who incurred expense should be made whole. The question is, by whom and to what degree?
