Every day that a Las Vegas business is forced to shut its doors can translate in to another dollar lost. Such an occurrence can be very detrimental to an organization’s bottom line. It may even force them to make staff cuts in order to pay their bills on time so as to keep from ruining important relationships with vendors. When a business is unjustly required to close, no matter what the circumstances surrounding the closure are, it may be necessary to hire a civil appeals lawyer to ensure that that doesn’t happen.
A plant that manufactures wood pellets has won their court appeal against a city entity that they claim unfairly took away their land use permit due to multiple violations. According to a judge’s ruling, the permit that was revoked by the City Planning Commission never should have been. In fact, the judge ruled that the city never had the proper authority to rescind the permit in the first place.
Last year the Planning Commission warned the plant that if they didn’t fix excessive noise issues then they would be shut down. They were also previously hit with complaints regarding the smells coming from the plant. After only a month the issue was apparently not resolved according to the city’s requirements because they pulled the plant’s permit, even though the permit never carried noise and odor constraints. In the end the plant never shut their doors; instead they sought the help of the appeals court and they were victorious.
