ajm3s Like I said this happened in my hometown a few years back before the bust. They were ticketing folks for having loose gutters or lack of landscaping which meant blight. All the while City properties were bigger offenders than anyone. The problem is the "teeth" of oridinance. When the judge hears the case he/she must interpet the oridinance by the written law and that is where they get you. If the Judge is pro-city you loose, if the judge stands for the people you win as it is thrown out. That is why the "teeth" meaning "more definable law" that cannot be thrown out so the judge has no leeway to side with the homeowner. Pay attention people this is the dangerous part. That word "teeth" is used all over the country and there are Law firms that specialize in setting up Citys for just this type of scenario. Teeth= Fines and Court= Frustration= Financial hardship= Sell property. Game over.
