Suit Claims Nashville's Environmental Court is Unconstitutional

Three Nashville residents are suing to shut down the the city's environmental court, which enforces codes violations, because they say the 1993 law that created the court was not implemented correctly, the Tennessean reports. The residents, who have had recent cases in the city's environmental court, filed the suit against Metro and state Attorney General Herbert Slatery, claiming the court unfairly levies fines on poor citizens to boost revenues.
