A Cook County company is suing an Itasca vendor, alleging negligence regarding asbestos removal.

DCT 191 North Avenue filed a lawsuit Oct. 22 in Cook County Circuit Court against Robertshaw Controls Co. of Itasca, alleging breach of contract, negligence, nuisance and conversion.

According to the complaint, DCT bought a building in Carol Stream from Robertshaw, planning to tear it down and construct a new venue. However, the suit says, the defendant tore out an asbestos-insulated heating system in the old building without properly handling and removing the insulation. As a result, the plaintiff says it has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on asbestos cleanup.

DCT seeks a jury trial and damages of more than $350,000, plus litigation costs. It is represented by attorneys Daniel G. Hildebrand and Ian D. Burkow of Greenberg Traurig of Chicago.

Cook County Circuit Court case number 2015-L010745.
