Worthington files motion to dismiss Lifestyle Communities UMCH lawsuit

The metropolis of Worthington has submitted a motion to dismiss the lawsuit submitted by residence developer Way of living Communities, alleging the metropolis is blocking the advancement of the previous United Methodist Children’s Property assets at 1033 N. Substantial St. into a combined-use household and commercial development.  

The Worthington Municipal Building is at 6550 N. High St. in Worthington.

The movement, which calls for the dismissal of all counts, was filed Could 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio Jap Division in reaction to Way of living Communities’ lawsuit submitted March 24. 

The movement calls for the dismissal of the developer’s due procedure statements, arguing that “plaintiffs simply cannot show a secured home interest in their discretionary rezoning ask for.” 

“The City’s Detailed System is not codified law and hence does not restrict the City’s discretionary authority in responding to Plaintiffs’ Planned Device Development (‘PUD’) application,” the movement states.
