Lawyer: Couple Returned to 'Bedbug' Hotel

A woman who's suing a New York resort, claiming she was bitten hundreds of times by bedbugs, returned to the same hotel two weeks later for another stay.

Leslie Fox and Stephen Cohen are suing the Catskills resort for $20 million, saying her body and mind were scarred by the bites.

Fox says she made the second visit to the Nevele Hotel in July because her husband was under contract to deliver a lecture and she wanted to be with him. She says she "went back with great apprehension."

But a lawyer for the hotel scoffs at that explanation. He tells the Daily News the husband "probably could have done it without her."

The lawyer says the multimillion-dollar claim isn't backed "by her willingness to stay in the same section of the hotel two weeks later."
