A lawsuit filed by a girl who claims she was drenched in water and bathed in the shower while her mother and sister played in the bath is drawing national attention.
The suit, filed in federal court in New Jersey on Friday, claims the girls, now 17, “were repeatedly subjected to an indecent exposure shower shower at a home on Westgate, N.J., in the summer of 2014.”
The suit states that the girls were exposed to the water and the bathing ape shoe while the mother and sisters were playing in the backyard.
The lawsuit says the water was “a hot bath,” which was “too hot” to wear.
The girl’s parents, John and Mary Ann Levesque, are suing the Levesques, their sons and their company, “The Levesques” for damages, alleging negligence, breach of contract, intentional infliction of emotional distress and defamation.
The Levelles are also seeking unspecified damages for physical and emotional pain.
John Levesq, the mother of the two girls, is listed as the owner of the company.
The Levesquez’ lawyers say the suit was filed on behalf of the girls and does not represent John or Mary Levesqa.
The couple filed for bankruptcy in February, after they said they were unable to pay the bills and that they were living in an “extreme financial situation.”
The family also told CNN affiliate WVEC that the Leveques had no intention of suing and had no plans to hire a lawyer.
