A Foul Lawsuit Against DJ AM

| Filed under: Legal MattersDJ A.M.

Rest in peace no longer, DJ AM. Apparently, your place stinks!

A former neighbor of the now dearly departed DJ is suing the star's estate, claiming that a piece of property owned by AM smelled so bad, it literally made other people sick.

The neighbor, Isaac Toveg, filed his suit with the L.A. County Superior Court and claims that while he lived near the deceased star, he often noticed a "gaseous foul odor and/or smell" emitting from the property from a broken sewer line. Toveg claims that when he would go outside, he would "experience problems in breathing and stomach ailments and would become severely ill." He even has documentation proving he was diagnosed with Helicobacter pylori.

Okay, that sucks, but shouldn't you have said something a little earlier. Like, before the poor guy passed away.

Well, supposedly, according to Isaac's suit, he did tell AM about the problem, but it was ignored. Now he wants $25k in damages.

Jenni Weinman, a rep for AM's estate, was quick to respond to the lawsuit, saying:

"It’s ironic that this suit was filed so close to the year anniversary of Adam's passing. I am sure that any issues regarding the drainage system or sewer pipes in the neighborhood are more of a city maintenance issue as opposed to a DJ AM estate issue.”

Hmm, that is kind of sketchy.

Also, has it really been a whole year almost?! Wow….sad.

    The lawsuit holds water because you CAN get H. Pylori from living in "unsanitary conditions" like, next to a junky with a broken sewer pipe. Give the guy his money, if the foul stench wasn't from the sewer it was from his crappy "music."

    could have been crack fumes

    The rep for AM's estate is right… a sewer/drainage problem is the City's issue, not the property owner, regardless of where the pipes/drainage is located.

    The person suing AM's estate should have filed a complaint/inquiry to fix the problem with the CITY first and foremost. The property owner is not responsible for City systems. (i.e. If a city water main that happened to be running under my property broke, and it flooded your house next door - why would I be responsible for paying for the damage to your property?)

    RIP AM.

    About 10% of under-30 population going up to about 50% of 60 year olds are infected with H. Pylori in the developed world (without being sick). This Isaac guy is just trying to make a quick buck from a dead man. Nasty fucker, let's hope he DOES get sick.

    italianvenus: if the problem is on the owner's premise, prior to the point of demarcation, then it is the OWNER's problem.

    Sounds like AM was negligent in having this addressed. The complaint has merit and the plantiff deserves resolution if there is proof of owner negligence or fail to act.

    You can bet if perez had this problem it would be public issue number one.

    Re: sonick808 – Well, the issue of responsibility falls on whether it was a broken service lateral (owner's) or it was from a local trunk line (city). This post only states it was a "broken sewer line".
    Also, L.A. is known for having an odor problems, to which they have a committee in Public Works devoted to dealing with such concerns. Odors can escape from sewers through pick holes in maintenance hole covers, through vents, and other very small openings in the pipeline and connection points, like a change in elevation ( Hello Hollywood Hills) …. and not necessarily through an actual break in the pipe/line. Also odors can be carried by the wind, so an odor that may appear to be coming from a specific property could actually be stemming from a different location.

    If AM had a visible break on his property through his line, his estate could be responsible, yes. But the burden of proof in a court case like this if this person's sickness was directly caused by this specific odor from this property, and no other factors. Also, to claim negligence, he would have to prove without a reasonable doubt that he talked to AM about it and/or that AM was aware of the problem, but didn't do anything about it.
    BTW, I'm not a sewer expert, I'm in Real Estate Development in So.Cal and come across issues like this often…

    This is total bullshit. Helicobacter Pylori lives in your body naturally, as well as on a shit ton of other surfaces you come in contact with on a daily basis. He could have picked it up anywhere. Just let the man rest in peace.
