Shannon N. Easley filed a complaint on Oct. 4 in Madison County Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging that they failed to maintain a reasonably safe property.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she suffered adverse health consequences from her exposure to black mold, was hospitallized, was forced to miss time from work and incurred substantial medical expenses.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants in excess of $50,000 plus costs of this action and all other relief allowed by law. She is represented by Brian M. Wendler and Angie Zinzilieta of Wendler Law PC in Edwardsville.
