Muskogee Little Theatre has filed a lawsuit in Muskogee County District Court against Dickmann Glass, PT Enterprises and RB Weatherman Masonry for almost a million dollars, alleging the three contractors did shoddy work resulting in water leaks every time it rains.
The lawsuit, filed yesterday, asks for $929,790 and possible additional damages, alleging that the glass and windows around the glass of the storefront windows and doors was not installed “with reasonable care and skill,” resulting in leaks that damage the inside of the facility.
The three contractors were subcontracting for M. Ross Incorporated at the time, the lawsuit states.
The facility, at 311 S. Third St., has been open since October 2016 after the City of Muskogee Foundation footed most of the multimillion dollar bill to construct it. Dickmann has “made a number of superficial efforts to remedy the water intrusion issues,” the suit states. It goes further to state that investigation has “revealed that improper design, installation and construction” were the cause of the problems.
