Lawsuit: Lowe's Cabinet Installers Drill Into Water Lines Three Times

Here’s an interesting little lawsuit from West Virginia. A customer is suing Lowe’s, claiming that installers contracted by the hardware giant drilled into his water lines. Not once. Not twice. Three times.

The now-allegedly-quite-soggy Lowe’s customer says he hired the store to design and install kitchen cabinets back in June of 2007. A month later he says a crew contracted by Lowe’s installed the cabinets — and drilled into his water line. When they came back to correct their mistakes — he says they did it again. And again.

He claims that the leaks have caused water and mold damage and is seeking compensation. Sounds like a lot of fun.
