GRETNA – A property insurer is suing a condo association where one of its policyholders lives after her condo was severely damaged by a water leak.
State Farm Fire and Casualty Company, as partial subrogee of Patricia Camara, filed suit against Stonebridge Condominium Association Inc. in the 24th Judicial District Court on March 7.
State Farm Fire and Casualty Company asserts it provided property insurance coverage for Camara’s condo at the Stonebridge Condominium Association Inc. located at 3320 Timberlane Way Drive, Apt. 140 in Harvey. The plaintiff alleges that Camara’s condo suffered extensive water damage on March 11, 2013 from a leak in the hot water heater in the condo above hers.
The plaintiff claims Stonebridge Condominium Association is liable for damages under provisions on its by-laws, yet no payments were made and no action was taken.
The defendant is accused of breach of contract.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought for repair costs and attorney’s fees.
State Farm Fire and Casualty Company is represented by attorney James E. Brouillette of Metairie.
The case has been assigned to Division B Judge Cornelius E. Regan.
Case no. 736-308.
