Jeanette Dubreil, a candidate for state representative from LD 22, and her husband, are seeking nearly $200,000 against the city of Peoria for injuries suffered by their 11-year-old son after he fell into a 10-foot-long metal pipe while playing at Palo Verde Park.
The claim seeks $165,000 for “pain, suffering, anguish and disfigurement” along with actual damages of $31,509.12 for medical expenses.
According to this report, the boy underwent surgery at a nearby hospital for deep leg gashes.
Jeanette Dubreil has been a steadfast supporter of former state senator and roadside brawler Scott Bundgaard. Returning the favor, he is one of her earliest donors with an in-kind contribution of $400. Phil Lovas was appointed to fill the seat when Bundgaard vamoosed during a lunch break in his ethics hearing.
Peoria taxpayers are getting off easy. The Dubreil’s hired Andre H. Merrett, Bundgaard’s previous lawyer, to represent them. If they had hired Bundgaard’s current attorney Suzanne M. Dallimore, the lawsuit amount would have been her customary $10 million, such as she is outlandishly seeking for Bundgaard and another client — both filed within days of one another.
