Deborah Rowles filed a complaint Nov. 8 in Pinellas Circuit Court against
Sunsational Beach Rentals LLC, et al, alleging failure to properly maintain
the condominium units in a reasonably safe condition.

provide adequate warning.

interest, costs and attorney fees and all other just relief. She is
represented by attorneys Frank D. Butler and James S. Curtis of Pinellas
