Colleges and Universities do not spend a lot of money on elevators. Maintenance contracts are awarded to the lowest bidders. The elevators ares not reviewed by an independent 3rd party to insure the contract is being fulfilled. The subject elevator was inspected by the FD, the police and Otis Elevator. I imagine they are the maintenance contractor. Now who has the most expertise of all these people and what do you think will be the ultimate cause of the accident? I will render a guess, the students will be found to have caused the accident.
