This is what I found on NEWSWEEK.COM:
Two neighbors filed suit against the family of a terminally ill child, calling the 14-foot high playscape they’ve built for him an “eyesore” which is too tall to be screened from their view.
Richard and Carole Gottleib are seeking $100,000 or less and the cost of their legal fees from their neighbors, Kim and Jason Costa. They have also requested a permanent injunction, saying the playscape must be torn down or brought to code because it violates the homeowner’s association (HOA) rules of their Georgetown, Texas neighborhood.
Kim Costa says that her neighbors have called the playscape an “eyesore” that “brings down their property value,” according to KXAN.
The report states that the couple erected the play set for their 3-year-old son Colton, who has Hurler’s syndrome, a terminal, degenerative and incurable genetic disease which affects physical and mental capabilities. People with Hurler’s have a life expectancy of about 10 years, although some victims live longer with a milder form of the disease.
The Costa’s obtained permission from their homeowners association, and installed the play set last summer. Then the neighbors filed their lawsuit.
WATCH the video report below for more details:
Like most three-year-olds, #Georgetown boy Colton Costa loves running, jumping and kisses from his mother. His family is hoping he will soak this time in and purchased him a swing set this summer, a set they may have to take down. @ShannononFOX7 has more: https://t.co/uvkChw4NoU
