Joe Montana has reportedly filed a lawsuit against San Francisco.
The former NFL quarterback is synonymous with the city and is royalty there, having won four Super Bowls with the 49ers in the 80s and turning them into one of the most iconic franchises in American football.
Widely thought to be the greatest QB of all time, Montana ended his career in Kansas City with the Chiefs. But he’s San Francisco through and through and has remained there following his retirement.
Now, he’s among a group of residents who are suing the city over sewerage damage following a storm on New Year’s Eve that had folks living on Marina Boulevard dealing with flooding and water damage. They are blaming the city for poor infrastructure.
The lawsuit reads:
“For many years, the city has had actual and constructive knowledge that the sewage and storm drainage system in and around the [Marina Boulevard area] cannot sufficiently handle anticipated conditions and rain events.”
The city has offered a response, stating the infrastructure is not to blame for the flooding as the rainfall was unprecedented, though it will review the complaint and respond in court.
Montana is one of at least 58 residents taking San Francisco to task.
