BREAKING - Judge Shuts Down Neighbor's Garage Lawsuit

We are pleased to report an update on a story we posted last month.Remember those Awful Neighbors suing Charles Williams in an effort to force him to close down his hobby garage. The ones threatening to bring "the wrath of Jesus’ breath" to close down his shop? 

AS THE SAYING GOES "S**T JUST GOT REALLY REAL"
Well, at least for the awful neighbor. 

“The honorable Judge Sam Glasscock just issued his 
opinion denying all further claims against Williams.”

Here’s the official court ruling from the judge: 

"I conclude that the provisions of the Zoning Code that the Plaintiffs allege Williams has violated are not Code provisions intended to protect their safety. Thus, violations of those Code provisions, if such violations exist, are insufficient to support a finding of nuisance per se. ...

For the foregoing reasons, Plaintiffs’ request for an injunction to remove Defendant’s Pole Building is DENIED. Plaintiffs’ request to enjoin the use of that building for the non-commercial enjoyment of the Defendant, by its use for hobby auto maintenance and repair, is DENIED. 
Plaintiffs’ request that I order the Defendant to remove the ornamental signs on his property is DENIED. 

The Plaintiffs have failed to establish that the Defendant has created a nuisance per se, and no relief under that theory is available to the Plaintiffs. Plaintiffs’ request that the Defendant pay their legal fees is DENIED. 

The parties should provide me with a form of Order encompassing the findings of this Memorandum Opinion together with those in my Memorandum Opinion of June 23, 2016."

ONE FOR THE "GOOD GUYS"
In basic terms, the judge disqualified all of the allegations made by the annoyed neighbors regarding Williams' use of the building as a hobby garage, the decoration of the building, payment of legal fees by Williams and the rest. All because they failed to present factual evidence of Williams operations of his hobby garage as being a nuisance or the building a safety problem.

We'd like to thank the Honorable Judge Sam Glasscock for bringing truth to light, exercising fairness in upholding the law and protecting the rights of the innocent. Bravo!
