Boat owners Layne and Leslee Gibson are asking Madison County Circuit Judge Ann Callis to order the City of Alton to answer their interrogatories and requests for production in a property damage lawsuit.

The city sued the couple in April claiming 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 claims.

On Sept. 2, the Gibsons' attorney, Daniel Bradley of Defranco & Bradley in Swansea, filed a motion to compel.

It claims the city was served with the discovery documents on July 18.

The city is seeking in excess of $150,000 in damages and other relief.

Callis has sent another case management conference to begin at 9 a.m. on Oct. 26.

James McTighe represents Alton.

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