The defendant is accused of breach of contract, negligence and unfair trade practices.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for property damage, cost, expenses and attorney’s fees.

The Plaisances are represented by Regel L. Bisso of Metairie-based Bisso & Miller LLC.

The case has been assigned to Division A Judge Raymond S. Steib Jr.
