In Dayton, Ohio bed bugs were found in the rental furniture of three disgruntled roommates, resulting in a law suit pitted at the rental company.
The bedbug lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Dayton in response to statements that these roommates received bed bug infested couch, loveseat, lamps and tables from a local rental center. The lawsuit says they immediately developed red welts from bed bug bites after moving the furniture into their home in February.
The Dayton Daily News reports that the lawsuit alleges that the rental center was negligent and caused emotional distress. It says the roommates had to hire an exterminator and get rid of possessions. This lawsuit seeks compensatory and punitive damages to be determined at trial.
