Early Tuesday morning, a balcony in a Berkeley apartment complex collapsed, killing six students, and injuring seven more. While dry-rot was cited as a cause during initial speculations, the question remains as to why it may have occurred. The company that built the Library Gardens complex, Segue Constructions Incorporated, has paid millions in lawsuits since 2013 due to similar problems in balcony construction.
