A tenant at the Commodore Perry Homes is suing the Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority, claiming mold in her apartment is making her and her son sick.
Cheryl Donohue and her son, Curtis, 17, have suffered respiratory problems and viral infections because of mold that Donohue said she has repeatedly asked the BMHA to remove from the apartment she’s lived in since 2011, according to court papers.
The mold has not been removed, the court papers say.
Donohue is suing the BMHA to cover past and future medical expenses, as well as other costs related to health problems allegedly associated with the mold.
The case was filed in State Supreme Court by attorney Ryan C. Johnsen with the HoganWillig law firm.
