GRETNA – A pair of medical clinics are suing their property insurer for allegedly not covering property damage caused by Hurricane Isaac.

The defendant is accused of breach of contract, bad faith claims adjusting, negligent claims adjusting and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for property damage, loss of use and enjoyment of property, repair and remediation expenses, loss of investment value, diminution of value of property, mental anguish, inconvenience, anguish, penalties assessed under state law and attorney’s fees.

Advanced Sleep Center Inc. and Advanced Neurodiagnostic Center Inc. are represented by Michael S. Brandner of the New Orleans-based Brandner Law Firm LLC.

The case has been assigned to Division P Judge Lee V. Faulkner Jr.

Case no. 735-606.
