Gray Annexation Leads To Law Suit Filed In Federal Court
Residents are questioning the constitutionality of Johnson Cityís annexation of some Gray property in a law suit that was filed. Attorney Alan Woodruff filed the suit in federal court in Greeneville concerning the Suncrest Drive area of Gray and the cityís pending annexation of the Bobby Hicks Highway in the Airport Road area. The suit cites several statutes related to annexation in Tennessee and one statute explains that the party challenging an annexation has the burden of proving that it is unreasonable for the overall well being of the communities involved while considering the health, safety and welfare of the citizens and the property owners. Woodruff claims that this statute fails to define these terms making them vague and ambiguous which deems a statute as unconstitutional if itís too vague. There are other concerns mentioned in the suit which was filed as an emergency motion on Monday for a temporary restraining order to keep the city from going any further with the pending annexation.
