“A lawsuit filed by the estate of Jonathan F. Stringer, the Chehalis man who died earlier this year when a trench collapsed as he worked on the Skookumchuck Wind Project, has been amended to include a company fined in a recent investigation by the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries, a lawyer representing the family said.

“Last week — shortly after the department of Labor and Industries announced that its investigation identified safety and training violations in the project and ultimately fined three companies more than $500,000 — Stinger’s estate added RES-System 3 to the suit, which was cited the largest fine for its eight violations totaling $360,874.” Read more
