N. Idaho Judge Rejects Lawsuit To Halt High-Rise

Posted: Updated:

 

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) - A northern Idaho judge has rejected a request by a group of homeowners trying to prevent the building of a 14-story condominium in downtown Coeur d'Alene.

The Coeur d'Alene Press reports (http://bit.ly/YOnkxA) that 1st District Judge Benjamin Simpson ruled Tuesday the Coeur d'Alene North Home Owners View Preservation LLC wasn't personally injured by the proposed building and so didn't have legal standing to file a lawsuit against the builder.

Simpson did leave open another avenue for the group to contest the building by filing a lawsuit against the city once building permits are issued.

Attorney Jim Crowe represents the home owners. He says a lawsuit could be filed against the builder under an individual condo owner's name and that would meet the personal injury requirement.

He says a decision about that hasn't yet been made.
