Hohl sues city for construction damages

Appeal Capitol Bureau

Michael Hohl has filed a lawsuit against Carson City over damages he says were caused by construction activities on city property near his Honda-Subaru dealership.

The lawsuit in Carson District Court charges Hohl’s property, including vehicles on his dealership lot, suffered more than $800,000 worth of damage when the city allowed grading and construction which “caused the release of fugitive dust, dirt, sand and small pebbles from the construction site” onto Hohl’s property. Of that total, the complaint says, the city is responsible for $40,000.

The alleged damage occurred during construction of detention basins to the west of the dealership in north Carson City in January 2004. Hohl also charges the city is guilty of trespassing and causing a nuisance.

No trial or hearing dates have been set at this point.
