More legal action filed in Hubbard horn honking saga

Staff report


Garrick Krlich and his wife, Lucinda, the Hubbard couple complaining of malicious horn honking at their home on East Liberty Street for several years, filed a civil suit in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court accusing 40 people of the practice.

The lawsuit also alleges that the honking has “expanded/extended to continued taunting within and around” Hubbard and Hubbard Township and damage to the side yard, paint-ball damage to the house and garbage being thrown on his property.

The suit seeks damages of $25,000 from each of the defendants, including five members of the Clemente family who live next door at 723 East Liberty St.

The Krliches, who live at 713 East Liberty, and the Clementes have filed at least two other civil suits against each other in recent years.

This suit is the latest chapter in a conflict that Krlich says dates back 42 months and has included scores of police reports and 20 or more civil stalking protection orders.

The Krliches sought civil-protection orders through Magistrate Patrick McCarthy of Trumbull County Common Pleas Court starting in 2011, filing dozens of requests against individuals he said were responsible for horn- honking incidents.
