Mold ruined my $5 million dollar silk walls says pro poker player Vadim Trincher; Suing Trump Tower condo association and contractor
According to an article in the New York Daily News, the pro poker player says his maid found three inches of water and lots of mold in their guest room closet. The leak is believed to have resulted from a broken valve in a duplex bathroom on the 64th floor.
He`s filed a $6 million dollar lawsuit for the damage. His lawyer says the wall fabric was specially designed and is irreplaceable. The lawsuit estimates value for the walls at $5 million. There was also damage to an ``extremely rare silk carpet” worth $150,000.
Truncher`s wife Elena also claims the mold has been making her ill.
The Trinchers’ suit is being filed against their condominium association and contractor Hunter Roberts Construction.
