Mr. William Rapetti's trial ended on Thursday with a not-guilty verdict by the judge that heard the case. This ends the first of the construction trials that the construction industry is watching, the other two being the Deutsche Bank Fire and the other crane accident. Mr. Rapetti and his company Rapetti Rigging Services were acquitted all charges. Unfortunately, he and his company, along with other companies on the project, the building owner and New York City, still must face several civil lawsuits in regards to the accident.
