NEW ORLEANS – A downtown New Orleans Gravier Street hotel claims a waterproofing company performed substandard work.
Windsor Court Hotel Partners, LLC filed a lawsuit against Apex Waterproof of Louisiana LLC in the Orleans Parish Central District Court on Dec. 4.
Windsor claims that the previous owners of the hotel hired the defendant to provide waterproofing and sealing services throughout the hotel. The suit goes on to explain that following Hurricane Isaac the hotel suffered immense water damage to more than 100 of the hotel rooms due to the allegedly negligent work done by Apex. The plaintiff claims the hotel has to hire another company to re-caulk the hotel at a cost of over $1 million.
The plaintiff is seeking judgment in its favor for the entire amount of damages plus attorney’s fees and interest.
Counsel for the plaintiff is Martha Y. Curtis of Sher Garner Cahill Richter Klein & Hilbert, LLC.
This case has been assigned to Division N Judge Ethel S. Julien.
