(WVIR) A federal judge will allow a jury to hear a New York woman’s multimillion-dollar lawsuit against a Virginia hotel over bed bugs allegations.

Janie McFarland checked-in to an Albemarle County Super 8 Motel on a visit to central Virginia with her church group from New York.

“It was our first night when I spent the night, so the entire time at the church service I was sick,” said McFarland, who is suing the motel owner.

That one night stay on September 13, 2014 left McFarland itching to leave.

She says she discovered more than 40 bed bug bites all over her body.
