A Jefferson County suit alleging two renters had poisonous water flowing through their dwelling's pipes has been transferred to Harris County

As previously reported, Robert Sandell and Carol Nobile filed suit against AMPM Door Service, Charles King and Katherine Parziale on June 13 in Jefferson County District Court, alleging the property managers refused to remedy the issue.

Court records show that on Aug. 9 the defendants filed a motion to transfer venue, asserting that it is undisputed that the rented home in question is in Harris County.

Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, agreed to transfer the case on Set. 29, court papers say.

In their original petition, the plaintiffs claim they rented a home through defendants but the home was not fit for human habitation.

"The defendants were made aware of the deficiencies, including poisoned water and other serious problems, but took no remedial actions," the suit states.

The plaintiffs are suing to recover damages for the injuries they suffered while living in the home, including past and future medical expenses, mental anguish and pain.

Beaumont attorney John Morgan represents them.

Kingwood attorney John Boudreaux represents the defendants.

Case No. B190-245
