A man who was treated for Legionnaires’ disease after an outbreak at an Ocean City hotel last year is suing the innkeeper for $6 million.
Pat Dent filed suit against Plim Plaza Hotel Wednesday in federal court in Baltimore. He and his wife are seeking $5 million in compensatory damages and $1 million for loss of consortium.
Health officials said six cases of Legionnaires’ disease, including a fatal case, were confirmed in people who had stayed at the hotel.
