Federal District Court Holds Plaintiff Has Pled Substantive Due Process Claim Against City For Demolishing His Building

The Rhode Island federal district court has held that a property owner has adequately pled a substantive due process violation where, in response to the City's "Order to Make Safe through Demolition," plaintiff provided the City with an engineer's report that the building did not have major structural damage but the City demolished it anyway and put a lien on plaintiff's property for the $6300 cost of demolition. The court denied the City's motion to dismiss the complaint.
