Reshamjit S. Chhina and Gurmeet Chhina, husband and wife, vs. Dan Ryan Builders Inc., Dan Ryan Builders Realty Inc., Daniel M. Ryan and David J. Doseff
PA - Michael Scales; J - Wilkes
* The Chhinas claim the defendants knew that the home they sold to the plaintiffs on June 28, 2004, regularly flooded and its septic system often failed due to excessive water, because the defendants already had been involved in litigation based on the problems at that home with a previous homeowner. Despite that, the plaintiffs claim the defendants were fraudulent and failed to disclose basement flooding problems that led to mold, mildew, unhealthy conditions and an uninhabitable environment. The plaintiffs are seeking more than $4.4 million in damages.
