Barona Resort Bedbug Lawsuit Tossed For Statute of Limitations

The Chisleys were bitten by bedbugs at the Barona Resort and Casino, Orkin apparently tried to cover up the issue.  YOU should immediately report bedbugs at hotels, and if it's tribal, you should make it public, as tribes would not be required to report it to health departments.

It is so sad that the statute of limitations prevent them from obtaining possible damages from the resort owners.
