FRESNO – Tenants of a Fresno property allege they were not reimbursed for repairs to the property to remedy damages caused by vandals.
Guardian Angel's Adult Day Health Care LLC and John Thao filed a complaint on May 11 in the Fresno County Superior Court against Cherry Blossom S-Corp. and Does 1-50 alleging breach of covenant.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Dec. 31, 2016, they leased a Fresno property from the defendants to open an adult day care facility. The suit states that before the plaintiffs moved into the property, it was vandalized and the defendants requested that the plaintiffs make the repairs. The plaintiffs allege they spent $49,100 on the repairs.
The plaintiffs hold Cherry Blossom S-Corp. and Does 1-50 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed and refused to keep the elements in the property in good operating condition and free from material defect and failed to reimburse plaintiffs for the repair and replacement of items due to the vandalism incident.
The plaintiffs seek judgment against defendant for compensatory damages, interest, costs of suit, attorney's fees, and further relief as the court may deem just. They are represented by Douglas V. Thornton and Robert W. Branch of Thornton Law Group PC in Fresno.
