Brad Pitt's foundation reaches settlement over faulty post-Hurricane Katrina homes

The actor's foundation has reached a $20.5 million (£17.2 million) settlement with those who received housing unfit to live in. Hurricane Katrina hit the coast of Louisiana in August 2005, resulting in more than 1,800 deaths and $125 billion (£104 billion) in damage. Pitt's Make It Right Foundation raised funds to build new homes for victims of the storm, which sold for $150,000 (£126,000) each. The foundation was sued in 2018 for defective design and building practices, breach of contract and fraud. The suit claimed the houses were poorly built and sold with significant structural issues.
