ST. LOUIS – A property owner alleges he incurred damages of more than $25,000 after pipes burst in the property because of a lack of heat.
Dustin Bray filed a complaint on May 4 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Tony Y. Lee, Jamie S. Fuhrman and Christopher A. Gohlke alleging they failed to maintain the premises in a good state of repair.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff owns a residence on Westminster Place, St. Louis that the defendants occupied. The suit states in January, Lee notified the plaintiff that the property had flooded with standing water on the first floor. The plaintiff alleges this was a result of pipes bursting because the defendants failed to provide heat to the premises while they were out of town.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants, jointly and severally, for an amount of more than $25,000, plus costs of court. He is represented by Brian M. Wendler, Paul Rademacher and Angie M. Zinzilieta of Wendler Law PC in Edwardsville, Illinois.
