GRETNA – Three homeowners are suing their neighbor who owns a property located behind them for allegedly illegally removing a fence and discarding it.
Kimberly Pittman, Jewel Pittman and Ava Nelson filed suit against Nathaniel A. Cooper Jr., Adrienne Cooper and Hacienda Construction of Louisiana LLC in the 24th Judicial District Court on April 1.
The plaintiffs claim they own homes located at 1739 and 1733 Heatherwood Drive in Harvey when Hacienda Construction of Louisiana did work on a home owned by the Coopers located directly behind their properties at 1732 Unswept Lane in Harvey. The Pittmans and Nelson claim that during the defendants work on March 3, 2015 they trespassed on their property and illegally removed a fence separating the two properties that was discarded and destroyed, leaving the rear of the plaintiffs’ property exposed. The plaintiffs contend that prior to the removal of the fence it had been in place for 20 years.
The defendant is accused of property damage.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought for mental anguish, emotional upset, distress, psychological damage and loss of enjoyment of life.
The plaintiffs are represented by Ralph Bickham of New Orleans-based The Bickham and Brumfield Law Group LLC.
The case has been assigned to Division P Judge Lee V. Faulkner Jr.
Case no. 748-303.
