In a lawsuit filed this week in Miami-Dade County, Eric Linder said he suffered from multiple bedbug bites during his stay in March. The bites left welts, lumps and marks over much of his face, neck, arm and torso, the suit alleged.

In the suit, Linder alleged the building had a history of bed bug problems dating back to at least Jan. 2016, but continued to allow guest to stay in “unsuitable” rooms.

Linder, who lives in Fort Lee, New Jersey, is seeking damages of more than $15,000.
