A Madison County man is suing over claims a lessee has failed to pay rent and caused damages to the property.
John Obucina filed a lawsuit April 14 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Haas Environmental.
According to the complaint, Haas Environmental leased Obucina's property on State Street in Granite City on May 1, 2010, and paid rent only until July 2012, though the lease obligated it to pay rent until May 2013. Obucina says he has also had to expend large sums of money making repairs to the property for which the lessee is responsible.
Obucina is seeking more than $61,000 in damages, plus costs of suit. He is being represented in the case by attorney John T. Papa of Callis, Papa, Hale & Szewczyk P.C.
Madison County Circuit Court Case No. 14-L-561.
