ST. LOUIS – An automotive parts supplier alleges more than $1 million in inventory was destroyed in a St. Louis warehouse fire.
Oscar Wilson Engines & Parts Inc. filed a complaint on July 31 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against GFA Decorative Trade Services Inc., doing business as Park Warehouse Services, and Folsom Group II LLC alleging breach of contract, negligence and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 15, 2017, plaintiff's automotive parts inventory was stored at defendants' warehouse in St. Louis and was destroyed by fire. The plaintiff alleges its inventory was valued at $1.3 million.
The plaintiff holds GFA Decorative Trade Services Inc. and Folsom Group II LLC responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to prevent the ignition of fire at the warehouse and failed and refused to compensate plaintiff for the loss of the inventory.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants in an amount of more than $25,000, with interest, costs and all other relief that are just and proper. It is represented by Marisa L. Saber and James I. Tarman Jr. of Cozen O'Connor in Chicago.
