ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis property owner is suing various entities, citing alleged negligence.

Willie Boone filed a complaint in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against the city of St. Louis, St. Louis Development Corp. and Land Reutilization Corp., alleging they failed to make sure there was no damage caused by a contractor to the adjoining properties prior to paying the contractors.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges he has suffered depreciation of the building and other consequential damages caused by TA&H Construction Co. during a demolition of an adjacent building. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly failed to inform the plaintiff of the damage to the common wall and failed to discover that there was no common wall coverage on the insurance submitted by the contractor, TA&H Construction.

The plaintiff seeks judgment against defendants, jointly and severally, in the amount of $56,000 and any further relief the court deems proper. He is represented by Rick L. Nelson of Nelson & Associates in University City.
