Christine and David Drabicki charged in the lawsuit filed Thursday that they unwittingly brought the bedbugs home with them after they stayed at the Waldorf in May. They say they had to flee their home in Plymouth, Mich. for six weeks while it was fumigated.
A spokesman for the Waldorf did not immediately return a call seeking comment Thursday.
This is the third time this year that guests have complained of bedbugs at the posh hotel. The Waldorf has said it found no evidence of bedbugs.
Alan Schnurman, a lawyer for the Michigan couple, said Christine Drabicki "has been ostracized in her community" because of the bugs.
