Tenants of the apartment building located at 3810 Ocean Boulevard in Long Beach, California have filed a lawsuit in the Los Angeles Superior Court against J-Mar Investments, Walter Watson and Entourage Property Management.
The law firm representing the tenants, Curd, Galindo and Smith, LLP had issued a press release this week stating:
“The tenants allege that mold was discovered in the apartments located at 3810 Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, CA in November 2015. The tenants reported leaks in the ceilings, mold in the cabinets and walls; however, the owners, J Mar Investment and Entourage Property Management, allegedly failed to take any corrective action.
The tenants are seeking unspecified damages for medical bills, loss of earnings, emotional distress, pain, suffering and humiliation.
The Court filing states that the Plaintiffs were suffering discomfort including headaches, dizziness, chest pain, muscle loss and memory loss. The Tenants allege that the Defendants’ violation of Long Beach and State building and housing codes, including California Civil Code §§ 1941 have caused them to be treated with various doctors and have had various diagnostic testing performed.
While living at the apartments the Plaintiffs continued to get sick .
The complaint also states that the Plaintiffs then conducted a mold study which allegedly revealed abnormal levels of harmful mold spores. A second mold report dated March 2016 allegedly confirmed positive findings of mold in the dwelling units.”
