The Metropolitan Omaha Property Owners Association sued the city, the Mayor and several other city officials, calling the Vacant and Abandoned Property Ordinance “unconstitutional.”

The claim “centers around a 2015 consent decree that was part of a settlement agreement in an earlier lawsuit by property owners against the city. The group said the city’s ordinance goes beyond the scope of the consent decree, which was supposed to govern housing code enforcement.”
