A case management conference is set June 29 in a suit brought by the City of Alton against two boat owners over a 2009 fire that damaged the Alton Marina.

The City of Alton is suing Layne and Leslee Gibson for damages in excess $150,000 and other relief.

The city claims that the Gibsons failed to properly maintain their boat to prevent corrosion from forming on its wiring and that the bad wiring started a fire at the Alton Marina in January 2009.

The Gibsons deny the city's claims in their answer filed May 20.

The city filed suit in April.

Madison County Chief Judge Ann Callis presides.

The case management conference will begin at 9 a.m.

James McTighe represents Alton.

Daniel Bradley represents the defendants.

The case is Madison case number 11-L-351.
