American family sues Landlord because...

...the house was haunted. Smiley Indifferent

A New Jersey couple is suing their landlord for a refund after they said paranormal activity caused them to flee their rental home.

 

 

Michele Callan and her fiance, Josue Chinchilla, moved into the home in Toms River, N.J., with Callan’s two children on March 1 and were immediately spooked.

 

 

“Three taps on the TV, taps on the shoulder…” Chinchilla told ABC News.

 

 

At first they chalked it up to the adjustment period of moving into a new home.

 

 

But things only got spookier, they said.

 

 

Doors opened and closed. The family even claimed they recorded strange voices whispering, “Let it burn.”

 

 

The new tenants said that between the menacing voices, flickering lights and clothes mysteriously flying from their closets, they couldn’t take it anymore. They fled the three-bedroom home and checked into a hotel, where they said they have been living since March 13.

 

 

Callan and Chinchilla filed suit last week in New Jersey Superior Court, seeking the return of their $2,250 security deposit from their landlord, Richard Lopez.

 

 

Lopez filed a counter-suit claiming the couple is using alleged paranormal activity as a way to break their lease.

 

 

“Frankly, there is something else going on,” David Semanchik, who is Lopez’s lawyer, told the Asbury Park Press. “She is a single mom, she has this fiancé living with her. I think she is in over her head and she can’t afford the rent.”

 

 

The couple said that isn’t the case, but ultimately a judge will have the final word on whether the family will be able to escape their alleged nightmare on Lowell Avenue.

But it's going exactly the same way here, with the blame-and-claim culture that is being pushed by slimeball lawyers, and readily embraced by greedy people unconstrained by morality.

Re: American family sues Landlord because...

So they waited until the ghost tapped the TV, turned on the lights, threw their clothes around, whispered "Let it burn" in the ears and actual physical contact before leaving the house?

Is it wrong for me to say we should expect this sort case considering one of them is a Mexican immigrant?
