County seeks to dismiss lawsuit
Legal counsel for Union County on Tuesday filed a motion to dismiss the Shelter From the Storm lawsuit.
In the motion, Union County attorney Brent Smith requests that the court dismiss any and all claims against the county.
Shelter From the Storm filed suit last month in a complaint for injunctive relief and damages amounting to $633,000. The shelter filed suit following a unanimous March decision by the Union County commissioners to site a new courthouse on the current footprint of the shelter’s administrative building on K Avenue. On April 1, Shelter From the Storm was served an eviction notice saying that they must vacate the building by Sept. 1.
