NEW ORLEANS – The New Orleans Aviation Board is suing a local parking business, alleging damages for a contract that was not honored.
The City of New Orleans, by and through The New Orleans Aviation Board, filed a lawsuit Jan. 5 against New South Parking in Orleans Parish Civil District Court, alleging failure to uphold a contract agreement.
According to the complaint, the aviation board and New South Parking entered into an agreement for the operating of a parking garage. The suit states that while the defendant was controlling the parking facilities, a woman was injured when her heel became stuck in a hole in the sidewalk of the property.
The lawsuit says the woman brought her claims against the aviation board, although according to the plaintiff's and defendant's agreement, the defendant was the one responsible for the injuries. The plaintiff seeks reparation of the damages done by the defendant for failing to take responsibility for the incident.
The New Orleans Aviation Board seeks reasonable damages, court costs, attorney fees and all appropriate relief. It is represented by attorneys D. Russell Holwadel and Heather E. Reznik of Adams, Hoefer, Holwadel LLC in New Orleans.
The case has been assigned to Division A Judge Tiffany G. Chase.
Orleans Parish Civil District Court Case number 17-184.
