HOUSTON – A lawsuit claiming that a 24 Hour Fitness member contracted a severe bacterial infection as a result of a poorly maintained public swimming pool recently switched jurisdictions.

Originally filed earlier this year in the Harris County 334th District Court, Albert Guerra’s suit targeting the California-based exercise-oriented chain was elevated to the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas on Mar. 11.

As previously reported in The Southeast Texas Record, Guerra holds 24 Hour Fitness responsible for “fecal matter contained at the bottom of the pool.”

The defendant responded to the allegations prior to the change in venues, insinuating that third parties not under its control are fault.

The law firm Brown Sims in Houston is representing 24 Hour Fitness.
