Sirous and Sons, Rug Store at Center of Rape Case, Clashes with Landlord and Laguna Beach
According to the suit filed Dec. 7, owner Sirous Ghasemian blames the city for damage he's estimated at $14 million that followed flooding on Dec. 22, 2010. Storm water, mud and debris washed down from the steep hills cradling the village, inundating the local flood control system and pouring the gunk into downtown businesses, including Ghasemian's store that hawked unique rugs.
Meanwhile, Sirous and Sons' landlord, Laguna Dana Investments, has twice sued the tenant since last summer over unpaid rent and lease terms being violated, reports the Orange County Register. There is also a Sirous and Sons rug store in San Clemente.
As for 53-year-old Maralan, the married father of a daughter in Laguna Niguel has a preliminary hearing scheduled for March 14.
