John R. Goodwin Sr. and Betty Lou Goodwin v. City of Morgantown, Morgantown Building and Property Code Enforcement Department, Morgantown Parking Authority, and John P. Kuehn and Natalie Kuehn
J-N/A; PA-John R. Goodwin
* The plaintiffs claim there is a danger to their building in the form of a falling wall that has massive backfill behind it. The city is threatening condemnation of the building. However, as the wall was constructed by the city circa 1969, it is the city, and not the plaintiffs who have a responsibility to repair the wall. Also, the plaintiffs claim that the Kuehn's vehicles have contributed to the crumbling of the wall and the landfill. They are seeking a temporary restraining order against the city and the code department, a Writ of Mandamus compelling the city to repair the wall, as well as compensatory and punitive damages from all parties.
