TAMPA — Nine days after a bank sued to foreclose on their Bayshore Boulevard mansion, Dr. Scott and Jill Kelley said a sinkhole cracked its walls and floors, according to a federal lawsuit they filed against their insurance company in 2011.
The lawsuit says the Federal Insurance Company denied the sinkhole claim.
This year, the Kelleys filed a neutral evaluator's report, which did verify sinkhole damage with an estimated repair costs of more than $100,000.
The suit shows that the Kelleys and their insurance company arrived at a settlement, the details of which were not disclosed. The foreclosure suit is ongoing.
