USNPS facing slew of lawsuits charging negligence in 2016 wildfires at Great Smoky Mountains NP

The Justice Department has assigned a team of attorneys to fend off a growing list of federal lawsuits blaming the National Park Service for allowing a small fire near Gatlinburg in 2016 to grow into Tennessee’s largest natural disaster and one of the nation’s deadliest blazes.


Veteran class-action attorneys Gordon Ball and Sidney Gilreath have now filed three lawsuits in U.S. District Court against the federal government – the U.S. Department of Interior officially – on behalf of the citizens whose lives were taken or property lost in a night of wind-driven wildfires in November 2016.
