Counterclaim in A/C unit lawsuit states League City couple insisted system operate during repairs
GALVESTON - A formal response and counterclaim were entered into a League City lawsuit over improper home repairs.
In court papers filed April 22, Brothers Construction Supply Inc. formally denies the allegations raised by Deborah and Bradley Boone last year.
The Boones sued the business on Nov. 21, 2012, claiming the company ruined their home's air conditioning system.
They originally hired the defendant to perform such tasks as sheetrocking, texturing and painting to the tune of $12,665, the suit states.
According to the original petition, the respondent "ran the central air conditioning system in the home allowing sheetrock dust to contaminate the A/C system as well as the duct work in the home."
“The defendant engaged in an unconscionable action or course of action by taking advantage of the lack of knowledge, ability, experience or capacity to a grossly unfair degree,” the suit says.
It additionally asserts Brothers “wrongfully” assessed taxes on the Boones in the amount of $965.25 for services rendered for their residential repairs.
Brothers' counterclaim insists that the Boones told the respondent to keep the air conditioning running despite warnings doing so would cause sheet rock dust to circulate within the home.
Attorney George D. Martin of Martin Garza & Fisher LLP in Galveston is representing the defendant.
Cause No. 68,779
