A condo board fought a 9/11 recovery worker over his shoes. Now it has a bigger problem: the DOJ

The Department of Justice has stepped in to resolve a conflict between a Florida condo board and a retired DSNY worker sick from his work at the World Trade Center recovery reports Justin Rohrlich of The Daily Beast.

Charlie Burge spent months clearing debris at the site of the World Trade Center and sorting through more debris at the Fresh Kills Landfill. He has a number of ailments from his time at the site, several of them respiratory. Irritants from his family’s shoes can exacerbate his breathing, so they leave their shoes outside. Their condo board threatened them with legal action.

The fight has escalated since.
