Actress Rachel Bloom is being accused of negligence in the nasty legal battle over her $1.3 million Los Angeles home.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Bloom is suing real estate investor Raul Menjivar and company The Run Group. She accuses the defendants of selling her a shotty property and hiding various defects.
In newly filed documents, Menjivar and The Run Group are denying all allegations of wrongdoing.
They argue Bloom filed the lawsuit past the statute of limitations for her claims. Further, Because of the "Plaintiffs’ misconduct, bad faith, or fraudulent conduct in connection with the events which are subject of this lawsuit, Plaintiffs come to this court with unclean hands.”
The defendants claim they fulfilled their contractual obligations. They accuse Bloom of being negligent in her own actions. They are demanding the entire lawsuit be thrown out of court.
Back in October, Bloom and her husband Daniel Gregor filed the fraud lawsuit against The Run Group and real estate investor, Raul Menjivar.
The actress purchased a $1.3 million Los Angeles home in late 2015. She claims to have been an unsuspecting first-time homebuyer.
She “fell prey to their fraudulent scheme, only to discover years later serious defects in their property which were deliberately concealed from them. Through this action, Plaintiffs seek to be compensated for, among other things, the amounts required to repair the subject property and correct the defects that were concealed by Defendants, as well as for punitive damages against Defendants in an amount sufficient to deter them from committing such acts against future homebuyers.”
