Area resident Jose Torres is suing the city of Beaumont in hopes of stopping it from demolishing his property.
The petition and application for temporary restraining order was filed Oct. 11 in Jefferson County District Court.
According to the petition, the defendant has slated to demolish the plaintiff’s home and the plaintiff will lose all he has invested into the property if the city is not enjoined.

The plaintiff is asking that the court issue a TRO and award him court costs.
Beaumont attorney Thomas Moses represents him.
Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, is assigned to the case.
Case No. A194-895
