City of Jacksonville’s suit allowed to continue

The First District Court of Appeals recently released its decision reversing the Duval County Circuit Court’s decision to dismiss the City’s Counterclaim and effectively allowed the City of Jacksonville to continue with its counterclaim against local construction company Blue Stone Construction, Inc.
The litigation was originally filed by Blue Stone against the City of Jacksonville to release various liens that had been placed by the City on its aging commercial building. However, the liens were released during the litigation leaving only the City’s counterclaim for monetary and injunctive relief under Chapter 518 of the Florida Statutes.
The First District Court of appeals decided that the City had properly pled a cause of action under Chapter 518 based on their allegations that the building was in an “unsafe or unsanitary condition” that “endangers the public health, welfare or safety of the community.”
