Cy-Fair resident accuses ex-roommate of stealing, contract breach
A Cy-Fair resident is suing after, she says, her ex-roommate, who now lives in Memorial, looted their shared apartment and failed to pay rent.
Cy-Fair resident Christina Liamis filed a lawsuit on June 21 in Harris County District Court against Memorial resident Jeffery Michael, citing breach of contract.
Liamis says that Michael’s bad credit made it impossible for him to lease an apartment, so on Oct. 17, 2008, she leased an apartment for him under her name, on the condition that he pay the security deposit, rent, some utilities and other expenses.
According to the brief, Michael failed to make any payments, as promised, and vandalized the apartment, furniture and other property belonging to Liamis. The suit further alleges that Liamis filed a police report when she discovered that Michael and an unknown third party unlawfully took her personal belongings from the apartment.
Liamis is seeking damages, attorney’s fees and court costs. She is being represented in the case by Houston attorney Andre Ligon.
