LIBERTY - A Casey County couple have filed a lawsuit in Casey Circuit Court concerning a landfill on property they purchased in December 2001.
Elhannan and Rosa Pennington of Walter Huff Road, Liberty, filed the document Oct. 21 with Circuit Clerk Craig Overstreet's office against defendants Edna Ruth Roy, of Dry Ridge, and Dawn M. Roy, of Mount Orab, Ohio.
The Penningtons paid the Roys $70,000 for 38.26 acres Dec. 7, 2001.
The complaint said "the deed did not contain any of the language, required by regulation, stating that any portion of the subject property had been utilized as a landfill."
The Penningtons believe that about 11 acres of the original tract was part of an illegal landfill previously used by the city of Liberty, then abandoned.
