A law student has sued one of downtown Cleveland’s chicer high-rises, contending that bedbugs drove him from two apartments — and flying gnats from a third.
In his lawsuit, Joshua Bobrowsky said the blood-sucking vermin in three Reserve Square apartments left him with painful welts and months of psychological and emotional distress. He seeks $142,000 in damages.
“I couldn’t sleep,” Bobrowsky, 26, of Pittsburgh, said in an interview Tuesday. “It was just a very horrible experience. Life isn’t enjoyable anymore when you think that everything you own is infested with parasites.”
A few questions:
1. It is very easy to move bed bugs from one unit to another. Could this account for Bobrowsky’s second apartment in the building having bed bugs?
2. The “chicest” high rises in Cleveland charge $1650 for a 3-bedroom?
(I just heard a rush of Manhattanites and their offspring running through the tunnel to New Jersey– they’re on their way, Cleveland!)
3. Flying gnats? Aren’t they a lot easier to get rid of than bed bugs?
Thanks to the Bedbugger who tipped me off to this one!
