A New Orleans man is claiming employees of a local furniture retailer illegally searched and seized property from his home.
On May 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, Thomas L. d'Aquin filed suit against Aaron's Furniture employees for allegedly watching his residence and using undue process to obtain property from his home.
Aaron's allegedly rented furniture to someone thought to still be a resident living in d'Aquin's home. The furniture purportedly was never paid for and in an attempt to receive retribution, Aaron's obtained a court order writ of seizure to remove the furniture from d'Aquin's property.
d'Aquin says that the removal of furniture from his home was racially motivated, as he is in an interracial relationship, and that the surveying of his property was part of a conspiracy to humiliate him.
d'Aquin is representing himself pro se.
