GALVESTON – A former tenant of a Galveston property alleges her landlord has prevented her from retrieving her property.
Kalae D. Cearley filed a complaint on Feb. 12 in the Galveston County District Court against Robert O. Coe II, Trelis Urban and Kenneth D. Urban alleging trespass to personal property, conversion and negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff and Harry Arthur Paul were tenants of Coe's property in Galveston. The suit states sometime in May 2018, an eviction was filed against Paul and she was not given notice. She alleges in July 2018 when she attempted to retrieve her belongings, the defendants prevented her from doing so.
The plaintiff holds Coe, et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly improperly assumed and exercised dominion and control over her property without her consent and failed to use reasonable care to keep her property safe from harm.
The plaintiff seeks monetary relief of more than $200,000 but less than $1 million and such other and further relief to which she may be justly entitled. She is represented by Charles F. Holmans III in Southlake.
