PINEVILLE — A Wyoming County property owner is suing a developer, alleging breach of a real estate purchase agreement led to injuries for the plaintiff.
George Fred Wooten filed a complaint in Wyoming Circuit Court against Cross Development LLC, alleging the purchaser negligently dug holes into plaintiff's property to perform tests and inspections.
According to the complaint, Cross Development entered into a real estate purchase agreement for the plaintiff's Wyoming County property. As a result of the defendant's wrongful conduct, the suit says, Wooten stepped into one of the hole dug by Cross Development.
Wooten says he suffered injuries, resulting in pain, inconvenience, surgery and medical expenses. The plaintiff alleges Cross Development failed to restore the property to its pre-inspection condition. Instead, the suit says, the defendant exercised its option to terminate the contract and left the property unrepaired.
Wooten seeks trial by jury, compensatory and punitive damages, interest, court costs and expenses and all other necessary relief. He is represented by attorney Timothy P. Lupardus of Pineville.
