EAST MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Jerome Walsh has filed a negligence suit in Shelby County Circuit Court against 24 Hour Fitness Gym in East Memphis after he contracted Legionnaires' Disease.

Walsh is one of three people who reportedly contracted the disease between May 21 and June 21 at the health club at 1285 Ridgeway. His attorney says club workers could have prevented the disease by conducting routine cleaning.

The lawsuit is requesting a trial by jury.
