Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp and his wife Cyndie have filed a lawsuit over the Chinese drywall that has damaged their new home in North Fort Myers. The Tampa Bay Business Journal reported details of the lawsuit, including that Kottkamp has hired his former employer, the law firm of Morgan & Morgan, to represent him and his wife in the case. Kottkamp is a Republican candidate for attorney general in 2010. The $1.4-million home was built by Aubuchon Homes, a company owned by state Rep. Gary Aubuchon, R-Cape Coral.
