Iowa City man files suit against UI

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

An Iowa City man has filed a lawsuit saying he developed a serious mold allergy after living in a property owned by the University of Iowa.

Cliff Missen alleges the State of Iowa, the Iowa Board of Regents, the University and Heritage Property Management were all negligent.

Missen is seeking $375,000 in damages.

He alleges the property manager didn't act when he made complaints about water coming into the basement walls, damaging his property and creating an unhealthy environment.

The lawsuit says Missen developed multiple symptoms and was eventually diagnosed as having a serious mold allergy.

University spokesman Tom Moore says the university will defend itself against the allegations.
