In Cleveland a law student from Case Western Reserve University filed a lawsuit against Reserve Square Apartments after claiming that his apartment there was infested with bed bugs.
The student, Joshua Bobrowsky, 26, is looking for $142,000 to cover the damages. He said that everything he owns is infested and three different apartments have left him with painful welts from being bitten. On top of that he has had months of emotional and psychological distress because of the infestation. Bobrowsky has said he is unable to sleep because of the bed bugs and that life is no longer enjoyable.
A lawyer representing Reserve Square Apartments is investigating Bobrowsky’s claims. No other tenants have complained of bed bugs.
