NEW YORK - A woman says in a lawsuit that she got bedbug bites while working at a midtown Manhattan building.

Jane Clark says the critter encounter last year left her unable to work and suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. The lawsuit, filed yesterday in state court, asks unspecified damages from the building owner and two maintenance companies.

A spokeswoman for Beacon Capital Partners LLC, the building's owner, had no immediate comment. Triangle Maintenance Service Inc. and American Quality Cleaning Corp. did not immediately return calls for comment.

The building houses the New York Post and the Fox News Channel, but they are not named as defendants. *
