Dominic Monaghan sues contractor for causing $21k damages

Lord Of The Ring’s Dominic Monaghan is taking a contractor to task after getting an allegedly less-than-stellar landscaping job.

The Lost actor, 41, is suing Bruce De Luis for defective work he did on the star’s LA home, according to TMZ.

The Englishman claims that after shelling out $53k for the work, he actually ended up with extensive damage to his property, also claiming the Southern California man was not licensed to work as a contractor.

Monaghan hired De Luis to install steps and a stone patio to his property.

He also paid the contractor to take care of general landscaping and other miscellaneous upkeep on the property.

But after claiming to spend tens-of-thousands he says the work was still incomplete and he had to go to another contractor for an estimate on repairs.

Dominic was told it would take around $21k – a little less than half of the original cost – to fix his property.

Monaghan says he unsuccessfully approached De Luis about the damage incurred but claims the worker would not refund him. 

The onscreen hobbit is now asking a judge to force Luis to refund Monaghan for his original bill, in addition to handing over money for damages incurred.
