Md. couple file $500K bedbug lawsuit

By Washington Post editors

A Howard County couple are suing the owners of their apartment complex for half a million dollars, claiming bedbugs infiltrated their apartment, covering them and their toddler daughter with dozens of itchy welts and causing “significant emotional distress,” the Baltimore Sun reports.

Orville Brown Jr. and Rebecca Brown were forced to move out of their Ellicott City apartment and discard most of their furniture and all their daughter's toys because of the severity of the infestation, according to a suit filed Friday in Howard County Circuit Court.

A representative of Hirschfeld Management Inc., which operates the Howard Crossing complex where the family lived until earlier this month, declined to comment on the suit.
