Muhammad Ali sues over home defects

When boxer Muhammad Ali and his wife purchased their Louisiana home in 2006, they were assured that the house was in good condition. However, over the last five years, they have noticed multiple defects in the house, some of which could cause damage to their health by potentially exposing them to asbestos and other carcinogens. Now, the Alis have filed a lawsuit against the former owners of the home, claiming that the owners lied to and manipulated them in order to sell them the house.

According to the lawsuit, the Alis purchased the home in October of 2006 for $1.87 million. After moving into the house, they noticed that it had several defects, including leaks in the roof and chimney, mold, poor insulation, improper construction of ventilation systems, improper connection of a main waterline, and issues with concrete patios, tile work, and retaining walls in and around the home.

The Alis filed a lawsuit against the former owners of the home, accusing them of committing fraud before and during the sale of the home. In the suit, the Alis claim that they made "material misrepresentations" of the quality of the home, which created a "false impression" in order to "induce" the Alis into purchasing the home. The defendant couple has not commented on the suit.

There are not many details available about the specific defects in the Ali home. However, if there are ongoing issues with insulation, tile, and mold, it is possible that they have been exposed to asbestos on a daily basis for the past five years. If that is the case, the former owners may find themselves defending against a much bigger personal injury lawsuit.
