FRESNO — A couple is seeking damages and relocation costs from the owners of Jack's Bayou Resort in Mendota, alleging that the RV park is not safe and unsanitary.
Phyllis Marin and Gabriella Marin filed the complaint on July 20, in Fresno County Superior Court, against Adel Mohamed Ali, also known as Ali Adel Mohamed, Mike Roberts and Does 1-5.
The couple, who resides in a rented recreational vehicle at the park,claimed that the owners breached the "covenant of quiet enjoyment of the premises," according to the lawsuit. The Marins live with their four children, including an infant, in the rented RV, according to the lawsuit.
They allege that there is overflowing sewage and exposed wiring at the park, according to the lawsuit. They also claim there is a rodent infestation.
The Marins accuse the defendants of "substandard, unsafe and unsanitary conditions," according to the lawsuit. The couple claims to have suffered physically, experienced anxiety and incurred medical expenses, according to the lawsuit.
The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible for failure "to provide habitable premises," the lawsuit alleges. The couple claims that utility services were "wrongfully terminated" and that requests for basic repairs ignored.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek general and special damages, punitive damages, civil penalties, relocation assistance and reasonable moving and storage costs, attorneys’ fees, costs of suit and such other and further relief.
They are represented by Emilia Morris and Ryan Bowler of Central California Legal Services in Fresno.
