Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies.
I am very sorry for your situation. The answer is possibly yes
, but one in your situation may have to pursue legal recourse to get this matter taken care of.
To sue in a state court, one needs to have a "cause of action." There are numerous causes of action, such as "breach of contract," "negligence," "fraud," "unjust enrichment
," etc., as well as causes of action rooted in statutory law. Every state has their own although they are very similar to each other in every state because they all stem from the same common law. A pleading in Court needs at least one
cause of action, although it is not unusual to have more than one.
Here, one may have a case for nuisance
. Nuisance exists "where a trade or business as carried on interferes with the reasonable and comfortable enjoyment by another of his property, a wrong is done to a neighboring owner for which an action lies...." Meadowbrook Swimming Club v. Albert, 173 Md. 641 - 1938
, also see WSSC v. CAE-Link Corp., 622 A. 2d 745 - Md: Court of Appeals 1993
As such, a suit like this (or threat of one) may result in them stopping or at least working with you on a compromise. Often, an attorney's cease or desist letter will help without even having to litigate. Let me know if you need a referral.
If one does have to pursue them in Court, a court can order an injunction, damages
, and legal fees.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.
