Annexation Trial Finally Set for August 2013

A 2007 annexation lawsuit has finally received a court date for August 2013, the Rogersville Review reports. In 2006, the Rogersville Board of Mayor and Alderman approved an ordinance that would extend the city limits approximately 1.2. miles and annex several subdivisions and vacant land. Knoxville attorney David L. Buuck filed a lawsuit challenging the annexation early the next year. In 2011, the lawsuit was put on hold pending the outcome of a similar case by the city of Newport.
