BECKLEY – A Fayette County man is suing construction company and a media provider over allegations the installation of cable through drains on his property caused water to back up and damage the property.
Kenneth Craddock Jr. filed a complaint in Raleigh Circuit Court against Suddenlink Communications, also known as Suddenlink Media, and an unnamed construction company alleging breach of contract.
The suit states that plaintiff is the owner of the property on Summerlee Road in Oak Hill and he contracted Suddenlink to install a cable line at his home on June 15, 2015. The suit states that Suddenlink sent the unnamed construction company to do the installation, and that the company installed the lines through the French drains on the plaintiff's property without his knowledge or consent.
The plaintiff alleges the drains began to back up in April 2017, causing damage to his property, as a direct result of the cable lines being run through the drains.
The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is represented by Brandon S. Steele in Beckley.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Darl W. Poling.
