HOUSTON – A Houston woman is in the midst of a legal dispute with two East Texas businesses over an invoice generated from textile restoration services performed after Hurricane Harvey, recent Harris County District Court records show.
Sara Paschall Dodd’s lawsuit against CRDN of the Ark-La-Tex and Premiere Cleaners and Laundry takes issue with a bill for $102,821.90 for the removal of storm-drenched items from Dodd’s residence.
Court documents filed on Oct. 31 explain that Dodd instructed the defendants to remove only the wet contents in her home, but the latter took away wet and dry items and took them to Texarkana.
The plaintiff says she was unaware of the companies’ actions as she was out of town during the hurricane and unable to return because of the ubiquitous flooding. It was through the invoice she learned of the erroneous extractions, the suit states.
Dodd reportedly attempted to retrieve her items to no avail. The complaint adds that the defendants misplaced and destroyed some of her previously undamaged property beyond repair.
A jury trial is requested.
Attorneys Christopher D. Porter and Charles R. Parker of the law firm Yetter Coleman LLP in Houston are representing the plaintiff.
