Sixteen former and current residents of a large apartment complex have won a $3.5-million verdict over an infestation of bed bugs in their units, their lawyer told the Los Angeles Times.

Park La Brea Apartments, a sprawling complex with more than 4,000 units in the Miracle Mile District, was found liable by a jury in Los Angeles Superior Court late Friday afternoon, attorney Brian Virag, who represented the plaintiffs told the Los Angeles Times. The 16 renters who lived in eight separate units complained about the bed bugs from 2011 to 2013; Virag said management of the complex knew about the problem since 2008. Nearly all of the tenants have since moved out, he said.

A representative for Park La Brea Apartments could not be reached for comment Saturday, The Times reported.
