Businesses seek appeals in hopes of blocking construction

When companies feel that their business may be negatively affected by a change in the area, they may want to take steps to prevent detrimental impacts to their operations. However, even if they take legal action, their cases might not prove successful at first. Fortunately, that does not mean that they are out of luck, because appeals can often give them additional opportunities to seek their desired results.

Florida readers may be interested in such a situation taking place in another state. According to reports, multiple businesses in a downtown area filed a lawsuit against the city hoping to block the construction of a project that involves multiple new buildings and a public park. The businesses believe that the lack of parking and additional traffic congestion downtown will damage their operations. However, the lawsuit did not prove successful for the businesses, nor did the first appeal.

The businesses are now vying to have their case heard by the state Supreme Court. The businesses believe that the city has violated the state constitution and city charter in order to build the civic center project. The city maintains that it is within its legal rights to carry on with the project.

Threats to a business can often cause company owners to worry about how they, their customers and their businesses overall will suffer. In cases where individuals believe that they have reason to fight against those threats, gaining information on possible legal options may be wise. Even if initial attempts do not prove successful, Florida business owners may want to remember that appeals are often possible.
