HOUSTON — A Texas man is suing a parking service provider, alleging breach of duty by allowing a parking garage to flood and ruin the plaintiff's car.
Randle Moore filed a lawsuit July 27 in Harris County District Court against Lanier Parking Holdings Inc., doing business as Lanier Parking Solutions, alleging the defendant violated its legal duty to the plaintiff and other customers in the garage.
According to the complaint, Moore had a contract to park his car at defendant's facility at 1800 W. Loop, Houston. On May 25, 2015, the suit says, a city of Houston main pipe burst, causing the parking garage to flood.
As a result of the flooding, the lawsuit states, Moore's car, a 2014 BMW 550i, was severely damaged. The plaintiff alleges the defendant breached its duty to exercise prudent and ordinary care and failed to adequately staff its emergency line.
Moore seeks trial by jury, monetary relief of at least $15,000, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney fees, costs and such other relief to which he is entitled. He is represented by attorneys Gordon W. Wall and John C. Stephens of Hall & Stephen PC in Houston.
