The lawsuit related to the arrest of janitor Lucio Catarino Diaz was filed on behalf of 13 women. They claim the janitor peed in their water bottles at work in an office building in Houston, which is why they tested positive for the herpes simplex virus.

In a press release, Houston law firm Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner alleges that the companies that hired the 50-year-old janitor "ignored the man's disturbing behavior."

According to the lawsuit, in August 2022, several women noticed that their water bottles “smelled and the water tasted bad.” This prompted one of them to set up a hidden camera that captured Diaz approaching her desk, setting down his supplies and "rubbing his penis against the inside and neck of a water bottle."

The woman says she sent the video to the house's management company and was told they would do something about it. However, no action was taken, and Diaz was again caught on camera doing the same thing.

Six days later, on October 3, office staff were notified of the incident.

“It's not only scary, it's humiliating for them,” said Kimberly Spurlock, a lawyer representing one of the women. “He was allowed to return and he continued to behave in this way, and who knows how many people took their water bottles during these six days and suffered from his actions.”

Diaz confessed to the crimes and was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The janitor's bodily fluids containing an incurable venereal disease were considered weapons in the charges.

Four women filed an initial lawsuit against the owner of the building, the management company, the renovation company and the cleaning company, and were later joined by nine more women.
