LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Havana Rumba is taking legal action against its landlord after a partial roof collapse at its Saint Matthews location.

The restaurant is suing Galleria of Saint Matthews, saying it failed to repair and maintain the building's roof.

The city closed Havana Rumba and several other businesses in the building on Oechsli Avenue late last month because of roofing issues.

According to the lawsuit, Havana Rumba told the landlord about issues with the roof before the closure, but they weren't repaired.
