City of Muskogee Wants $2M Judgment Reversed (Sep 17, 2012)

MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) - The city of Muskogee wants a nearly $2 million judgment to be reversed in a lawsuit that alleges private property was taken unlawfully.

The Muskogee Phoenix reports a lawyer for the city in eastern Oklahoma filed an appeal Friday after Deary and Esther Vaughn were awarded a $1.95 million judgment.

The newspaper says the Vaughns owned property that the city condemned and demolished in 2005.

The Vaughns, doing business as Broadway Apartments, filed a lawsuit in 2007. The newspaper says the city failed to object to the commissioners' report or demand a trial.

Last year, Creek County District Court Judge Douglas W. Golden directed a verdict in favor of the Vaughns. Golden issued the ruling without hearing any testimony.
