LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A group of 15 Louisville Metro police officers have filed a class action lawsuit against the city and the Metro Housing Authority.

The plaintiffs claim they were exposed to toxic levels of mold at a government building on Barret Avenue that is owned and run by the Metro Housing Authority and Public Works Department.

The lawsuit claimed those departments did not maintain the building, and made the people who worked there sick.

The plaintiffs are asking for the building to be properly cleaned before they return to work.
