Bedbug lawsuit could cost $2.45 million

Residents of Elsie Mason Manor and Ligutti Tower have joined together to file a lawsuit that will cost the renters over $2.45 million after ignoring the elderly and disabled who lived there.

The lawsuit brought by elderly bedbug-bitten residents of two downtown Des Moines apartment buildings has just now been agreed to a preliminary approval of paying the last 300 people who have lived there. Each will receive from $200 to $6,000

“Residents filed the lawsuit in March 2010 seeking money for back rent, lost property and other hardships.”

Resident Jo Ann Meyer agreed. “You go in anywhere, a grocery store, a doctor’s office, anywhere. Everybody just backs off when they hear you live at Elsie Mason Manor,” Meyer said.

The managers, being slow to react to the bites, are now facing a lawsuit after 200 people had complained about the situation.

  1. Man that is so sad to hear and so sorry on the renters part! One simple call to the closest pest control company could have saved them millions!!!!
