CINCINNATI (WKRC) – A local real estate company is suing dozens of protesters in a class action lawsuit.

Several nights of protests that turned to riots left buildings in Cincinnati neighborhoods damaged.

Court St. Executive Suites fell victim. Now, they are suing to pay for the damages.

“The windows were broken and some sort of contaminant was thrown inside the building on furniture, the walls, and the carpeting,” said Blessing.

Attorney Bill Blessing represents the business. The suit wants to represent other businesses that were looted, vandalized, or damaged during the unrest.
