Court documents reveal that residential tenants in Long Beach have filed a lawsuit in the Los Angeles Superior Court (Sager v. J-Mar Investments et al LASC Case No.: BC617543) against J-Mar Investments, Walter Watson and Entourage Property Management.

In the lawsuit, the tenants allege that mold was discovered in the apartments located at 3810 Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, CA in November 2015. The tenants reported leaks in the ceilings, mold in the cabinets and walls; however, the owners, J Mar Investment and Entourage Property Management, allegedly failed to take any corrective action.

The Court filing states that the Plaintiffs were suffering discomfort including headaches, dizziness, chest pain, muscle loss and memory loss. The Tenants allege that the Defendants' violation of Long Beach and State building and housing codes, including California Civil Code §§ 1941 have caused them to be treated with various doctors and have had various diagnostic testing performed. While living at the apartments the Plaintiffs continued to get sick . The complaint also states that the Plaintiffs then conducted a mold study which allegedly revealed abnormal levels of harmful mold spores. A second mold report dated March 2016 allegedly confirmed positive findings of mold in the dwelling units.

The lawsuit states that the Tenants seek unspecified damages for medical bills, loss of earnings, emotional distress, pain, suffering and humiliation.

Court documents also provide that the tenants have alleged that the defendants have failed to comply with the Health & Safety Code by failing to provide a habitable dwelling and failing to pay relocation expenses to perform remediation at the dwelling units.
