WILKES-BARRE — A Harveys Lake man has filed a lawsuit in county court against the parents of a man he says stabbed him repeatedly, alleging they have failed to pay more than $20,000 in medical bills and other expenses.
Louis David Abod filed the suit through his attorney, Andrew Katsock, against Mark and Diane Katlic, of Reistertown, Md.
According to the suit, on March 11, 2012, Abod was at a friend’s home in Kingston, where the Katlics’ son, Adam, shot him with a staple gun and then stabbed him in the neck and face multiple times.
Adam Katlic was arrested and charged with related crimes. At a March 22, 2012, preliminary hearing, the Katlics agreed to pay and/or reimburse Abod for medical expenses totaling $20,186.
The suit says Abod also lost $2,850 in wages that he says he is also owed and that the Katlics have not made any payment to him.
Court records indicate charges against Adam Katlic were dismissed after his April 21, 2012, death.
