Syracuse landlord sued by Attorney General for renting apartments with lead paint, harming 18 children

The New York State Attorney General Letitia James has sued a Syracuse landlord for the lead poisoning of 18 children from properties he was renting.

John Kiggins and his company, Endzone Properties, have 89 properties and during a span of six years, 18 children suffered from lead poisoning due to his repeated violation of lead paint laws.

Lead can have life-long negative impacts on children due to its toxicity.


Kiggins and his company either provided deceptive disclosures about the hazrdous lead paint or failed to provide the required disclosures.

Kiggins has also been in legal trouble for renting unfit apartments in 2007.

The lawsuit is looking for Kiggins and Endzone to provide adequate housing with safety from lead as well as pay fines and penalties to the court.
