ST. LOUIS — A property owner is suing Folsom Group II LLC, GFA Decorative Trade Services Inc., et al, warehouse operators, citing alleged breach of a bailment contract.

Transworld Sales and Marketing Inc. filed a complaint on Jan. 10 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against the defendants alleging that they failed to perform their obligations under the contract.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that the defendants accepted numerous miscellaneous items and personal property owned by the plaintiff to their warehouse facility and agreed to return the same at the plaintiff's direction. On. Nov. 15, 2017, a fire broke out at the defendants' warehouse that completely destroyed the plaintiff's property amounting to approximately $2.8 million.

The plaintiff holds Folsom Group II, GFA Decorative Trade Services, et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to compensate the plaintiff for the lost inventory.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks judgment against the defendants in the amount of $2.8 million with prejudgment and post-judgment interest, costs of this suit, and any other relief that are just and proper. It is represented by Theodore D. Dearing of Dearing & Hartzog LC in Clayton.
