McKennan Park Monster House owners ask for remodeling advice from the SD Supreme Court

You can’t make this stuff up;

In these latest documents for a rehearing with the Supreme Court, the Sapienzas’ attorney says that circuit court decision didn’t consider how remodeling, or tearing down and rebuilding will harm his clients.

That is not the concern of the courts. You own the house, you paid someone to design it and build it, so guess what, it’s your problem.

My guess is the SD Supreme Court will deny the re-hearing and inform the Sepienzas’ to hire a good handy man, one that is licensed and bonded of course 🙂

Nothing will happen. With the legal wrangling, the matter will eventually be forgotten. The city approved it and state Supreme Court is all talk and no action.

Andrew Jackson said it best:

“John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it.”

Lawsuits. For. Days. Lawyers are going to be making money on this case for years.

Also, gotta love that court ruling. It seems the Sapienzas could spend the money to bring the house into compliance and still leave the McDowells with a chimney that can’t legally be used, which seemed to be the point of contention that led to the litigation in the first place.

Talk about spreading the misery…
