A Texas corporation wants the court to stop the city of Beaumont from condemning its building.

Statewide Consolidated Development Corp. filed an application for a temporary restraining order May 27 in Jefferson County District Court against the city.

Statewide claims it will suffer irreparable harm if the court does not prevent the city from condemning a house scheduled for demolition at 1616 Sabine Pass Ave. in Beaumont.

"Plaintiff would suffer almost all his investment in the home," the suit states.

In its application, Statewide is asking the court to issue a temporary restraining order preventing the city from demolishing the house, to set a date and time for a hearing, to enter a temporary injunction preventing the defendant from demolishing the structure, to grant it expenses and to grant it other relief the court deems just.

Thomas O. Moses of Beaumont will be representing it.

The case has been assigned to Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court.

Jefferson County District Court case number: E186-947.
