A Hubbard man filed a lawsuit late last week suing 40 people he believes have harassed him by honking their horns near his home for the past three years.
Garrick Krlich, of East Liberty Street, filed the lawsuit Friday against 40 people who he recorded using audio-visual recording devices honking their car horns.
Krlich claims the honking has caused him and his wife emotional distress. He is asking for more than $25,000 in damages.
The lawsuit says the honking is over a real estate dispute. Krlich created a website where he posts police reports and civil protection orders he’s filed.
“You come home and there is non-stop horn blowing and you would rather stay at work and not even come to your house,” Krlich said.
Krlich also claims he’s been harassed and has been physically threatened in person and via email.
The lawsuit names a firefighter and police officer, along with Krlich’s neighbor John Clemente, who he says started the dispute.
James Wynne, who is also named in the lawsuit, said his case was dismissed because he proved he was honking his horn at a friend and a relative and not at Krlich.
Wynne said the lawsuit is frivolous and plans to meet with others involved in the suit.
“I thought it was dying down,” Wynne said. “He tried to get a civil protection order against me and it was denied. I thought it was over with and now I read that he’s suing me.”
