Did this ever get resolved? Or is it now gone to the lawyers?

No progress yet. We’re waiting till spring to try and yank it out of the city via manhole. I’ll be taking plenty of pictures on D day.

No lawyers, everyone I’ve talked to has said the same thing, governmental immunity.

What a $hitstorm. Good luck sights, you'll get it. The one piece of advice I will say is too late now, but put heavy wet towels or carpet or something over your cable if you use a come along. I walked in on a tech who had his duracable stretched to a strait wire in his desperation.
