Manassas Now Free Of DOJ Complaint

By Greg L | 30 April 2008 | Manassas City | 6 Comments

The MJM is reporting that the lawsuit by the Equal Rights Center in regards to a 2005 effort to control residential overcrowding was dismissed by the courts, as well as a complaint against Manassas City Schools.  This legal action had pretty much frozen the City of Manassas from considering any policy initiatives regarding the illegal alien issue and the billboard on Prince William Street, and now that this seemingly endless legal challenge has been dismissed, the City is now free to start solving some of these problems that have been shelved for too long.

This is the last excuse left for the City to drag its feet about the billboard on Prince William Street.  They better get moving, because any cover for inaction has now been removed.

    Hmm, I wonder what the excuse the criminal supporters will use now that they can use the threat of a lawsuit to discourage action against criminals.

    Though at least one of the newest members of the Council, Wolfe, seems to be more concerned with the “reputation” of the City then with combating criminals, he may have not choice but to come around as well.

    The MJM headline is misleading. Read the article.

    Unfortunately, the lawsuit was dismissed because the overcrowding ordinance and hotline were abandoned, making the lawsuit moot.

    I would have preferred that the lawsuit was dismissed because the suit had no merit, and that the ordinance was upheld in the courts. Because the city of Manassas did not have the fortitude to stand by their decisions and fight for their rights in the courts, we will never know if the courts would have backed the ordinance.

    It is my understanding that the “dismissal” reported by MJM is NOT the end of the suit. It just narrows the focus! It is also my understanding that the entire council is aware of the situation at the corner of Prince William and Liberty Streets and are proceeding in an orderly constrained fashion because OF the current lawsuit. Is this correct Andy?

    JM,

    I believe that both you and the MJM are mistaken. The ordinance didn’t establish the overcrowding taskforce or the hotline. Both predate the ordinance by at least a year. When they repealed the “definition of family” ordinance, it had no impact on the continued existance of the taskforce or the hotline. I have used it as recently as 45 days ago to re-report a house that alternates between compliant and overcrowded as often as the seasons changed. Also, just last month, an unofficial 3-house rule (you had to live within three houses to file a report) was scrapped, in favor of a “Cry Wolf” policy (if you repeatedly call on homes and there are never any violations, then you go on a special list of harrassment callers).

    I cannot comment on this other than to say that the case has not been dismissed in its entirety.
