The 43-year-old owns a loft apartment here and she hired the company to repair the roof of the building, a refurbished 1860s warehouse.

According to the law suit, when a big storm hit in October 2010, poor quality work caused the loft to leak like a sieve, reports

The construction company has sued Connelly. It says she let the roof fall into disrepair. The roofers say if a jury orders them to pay the insurance company, they want the judge to order Connelly to pay them back.
