Tenant Tinesha Wilson sued Ehresman in 2008 for paying back a series of security deposits one day late. If Ehresman loses the suit, he said he faces paying at least $100,000, of which he said $30,000 would go to the plaintiff's attorney, Mark Silverman. Three calls to Silverman Tuesday were not returned by deadline.
