EAST ST. LOUIS — An insurance firm is suing Christone Enterprises Inc., an Illinois corporation leasing and managing property in Belleville, and the West Virginia-based owners of the property, Ray H. Lewis and Alihah M. Lewis, seeking a declaration that a policy does not cover a claim asserted by the Lewises in St. Clair County Circuit Court.
Owners Insurance Company filed a complaint on June 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois against the defendants, alleging that Owners Insurance Company suffered damages as a result of claims the Lewises made against a policy held by Christone. The plaintiff claims the policy does not provide coverage for those damages.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant with a declaration that the policy does not cover the damages claimed to the property and any further relief as this court sees fit. It is represented by Daniel R. Price of Wham & Wham Lawyers in Centralia.
