Attorney Groth was interviewed by Milwaukee’s WISN tonight. In part the story states:
Wednesday, just before delivering his State of the County speech, Holloway was also served with papers from a tenant who is suing him. Thelma Murphy, who lives in a building in the 2000 block of Atkinson that Holloway owns, claims bad lighting and poor upkeep of the stairwell caused her to take a debilitating fall in August. “The stairs were torn and tattered,” said attorney Jonathan Groth, Murhpy’s attorney. Groth sent Holloway a letter on Murphy’s behalf in October, requesting the name of Holloway’s insurance company, to cover Murphy’s medical bills. Groth said instead of responding, Holloway tried to evict Murphy. In January, Groth and Murphy claim in the lawsuit, Holloway sent “an armed thug” to Murphy’s apartment. “When he left back out, he put the gun back to me and told me, ‘Thelma Murphy — I know who you is, and Lee Holloway wants you out of this building immediately,'” Murphy told 12 News earlier this month. “This is the most uncivil civil servant I think we have in the Milwaukee area,” Groth said. The Milwaukee city attorney’s office is prosecuting the municipal case against Holloway for five properties with outstanding violations.
