Anyone know if there’s a potential case for property damages from flooding if the city failed to maintain a storm drain (they knew there was a clog after the last flood). Need a glimmer of hope…

If they're supposed to maintain the drain and you can specifically and definitively prove that the flooding was due to failure to maintain (negligence), you may have a case.

If you can prove that they knew there was a problem that could reasonably be expected to lead to flooding and knowingly chose not to address the problem in a reasonable timeframe, you may have a better case.

It's all in the details, and you should consult with an attorney.

Is there ever a scenario where it would be beneficial to the employee to enter into an arbitration agreement with your employer (mutually consent to resolve by arbitration all claims or controversies, past present or future that the company may have against you or you against the company/company's employees)? I can't see any real benefit as an employee to waive my rights.Context: received an offer in which there is a voluntary arbitration agreement. No adverse employment action if I opt out. TIA
