The city of Beaumont will have to wait a few more months before being non-suited from litigation brought by a Jefferson County man who sued the city in order to save a home he purchased from demolition.

On April 28 Gary Robbins filed a lawsuit in the Jefferson County District Court, seeking a temporary restraining order and temporary and permanent injunction against the city of Beaumont.

Gary Robbins says he purchased a home at 2180 Pecos St. in Beaumont to save it from a scheduled demolition after it was declared a dilapidated structure by the city.

Court records show that on Sept. 3 Judge Gary Sanderson, 60th District Court, signed an order submitted by the parties that states the city will be non-suited with prejudice on Feb. 3.

However, instead of non-suiting the city on the date, Judge Sanderson issued an amended order extending the non-suit date to July 2.

The plaintiffs request to extend the request was unopposed by the city.

Beaumont attorney Jeffrey T. Roebuck is representing Robbins.

Attorney Quentin Price is representing the city.
