GRETNA – State Farm Fire and Casualty Co. is seeking damages, claiming that a condominium failed to properly repair damages in an apartment.
State Farm Fire and Casualty Co. filed a suit against Whitney Place Condominium Association Inc. and Scottsdale Insurance Co. in the 24th Judicial District Court on June 23.
According to the claim, Leola Welty owned a property at 2712 Whitney Place in Metairie. Following her purchase of the property, the suit states that the chiller lines for the HVAC system of Welty's unit, which are owned by the defendant, began to leak and cause damages to her property. The suit states that the lines were allegedly repaired, but that on June 26, 2015, they again began to leak and caused more damages to Welty's property. The condo association allegedly ceased offering help in the repair of the lines.
The defendant is accused of negligence and fault through allowing such a condition to exist, failing to properly repair the lines and breaching the contract with the apartment owner.
The plaintiff is seeking an unspecified amount in damages. The plaintiff is represented by Blaine T. Aydell and W. Ransom Pipes of Hannah, Colvin & Pipes in Baton Rouge.
The case has been assigned to Division H Judge Glenn B. Ansardi.
