Bankruptcy trustee sues Clarksburg over demolition of landlord couple's properties

Reported by: Associated Press
Thursday, February 20, 2014 7:44 AM EST

The city of Clarksburg is being sued by a bankruptcy trustee over the demolition of several properties owned by a landlord couple.

The lawsuit contends that city officials deprived Thomas J. and Diana R. Jacquez of their property rights without due process.

The lawsuit also alleges that city officials refused to grant the couple building and occupancy permits and revoked their rental business license to assert control of the properties and demolish them.

The Exponent Telegram reports that lawyers representing Tom Fluharty filed the lawsuit this week in U.S. District Court in Clarksburg. Fluharty is the bankruptcy trustee in the couple's Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. The lawyers also represent the couple.

Clarksburg City Manager Martin Howe tells the newspaper he hadn't had an opportunity to review the lawsuit.
