A judge has not gotten back to us in three weeks about an injunction we are waiting for .We legally do have a deed for parking in front of our commercial building and the business next door has blocked all our parking. Recently, they had the fire dept. Suddenly Put a fire lane after 15 years in front of our store parking. We have no parking for customers at all.There has been cross easement and a legal document proving this all the years we have been there,and suddenly they are allowed to put in a fire lane, and they also put up signs that have not allowed our customers park in front of their building. The document state cross parking for the 3 buildings.For 18 months they have gotten away with this. They continue to do this so we go out of business. No local lawyer will take our case because of conflict of interest. The owner is pals with everyone in city hall. We had to go to another town for a lawyer. And now the judge isn't and hasent got back on a ruling?We had one lawyer, in the town early on ,and paid 2,000 dollars to him, and then he dropped us, "conflict of interest." ️No local lawyer wanted the case and now the judge won't rule?We are not allowed to contact the judge we were told.
