ST. LOUIS — A telecommunications company is suing the city of St. Louis, citing alleged insufficient measures were taken to prevent damages.

Southwestern Bell Telephone Co., doing business as AT&T Missouri, filed a complaint Sept. 27 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against the city of St. Louis, alleging it failed to properly train and supervise its employees on how to safely operate their trucks in a way to prevent damage to other property.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on various dates, it sustained damage to its lines and cables. The plaintiff holds the city responsible because the defendant's employees' trash truck allegedly hit, snagged, pulled down, dropped down, tore and spliced the plaintiff's cables.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages, plus costs expended for this action. It is represented by James N. Fendelman of Fendelman & Associates LLC in St. Louis.

St. Louis Circuit Court case number 1722-CC11416
