Court Declines to Take Up Chattanooga Suit

The Tennessee Supreme Court has declined to intervene in a case brought by the city of Chattanooga against the group repsonsible for The Passage, the city’s crumbling portion of the 21st Century Waterfront, the Times Free Press reports. An appeals court previously dismissed the city’s 2009 lawsuit because Chattanooga officials waited too long to file after Hargreaves Associates, the architects who designed The Passage, informed them of defects and necessary repairs in 2005. The legal statute of limitations is three years.
