EDWARDSVILLE — A Trenton man is suing two neighbors, alleging they failed to keep their dog from attacking the plaintiff. 

Jesse Eller filed a lawsuit July 11 in Madison County Circuit Court against James M. Lombardo and Jill D. Lombardo, alleging violation of the Humane Care for Animals Act.

According to the complaint, on June 14, while Eller was lawfully ot the Lomardos' property, their dog suddenly and without provocation attacked and bit him. The suit says the bites caused Eller severe injuries to his lips, nose, throat, left thigh and stomach. 

The plaintiff alleges the Lombardos negligently allowed their dog to attack him.

Eller seeks a trial by jury, judgment of more than $50,000, costs of this suit and such other relief as the court and jury deem proper. He is represented by attorney Eric J. Carlson of Byron, Carlson, Petri & Kalb LLC in Edwardsville.
