After receiving an injunction to stop the city of Beaumont from demolishing a property obtained at the Jefferson County Sheriff’s sale in April, Ronnie Mickles non-suited the city. 

As previously reported, the petition for injunctive relief was filed June 7 in Jefferson County District Court.

Court records show Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, signed off an unopposed temporary injunction on July 16.

The order also states that 150 days after July 16 the city shall be non-suited from the litigation.

According to the petition, on April 3 Mickles purchased property at 1140 Roberts Street in Beaumont at the sheriff’s sale with the intention of renovating and remodeling the house.

However, when he sought a building permit, Mickles learned the city had condemned the house and planned to demolish the structure.

Mickles claims he will suffer irreparable harm unless the city is enjoined.

Beaumont attorney Mel Shelander represents him.

Case No. B192-539
