Suspended Contractor Files Lawsuit Challenging Detroit Water Board's Suspension Policy (UPDATED)

Earlier today, L. D'Agostini & Sons, one of the 13 contractors suspended for 3 years by the Detroit Water Board on December 21, 2011, filed a federal lawsuit contesting the Board's decision. 

The lawsuit alleges that the Water Board's actions violated the contractor's due process rights and violated its rights under 42 USC 1983, a federal civil rights statute.  

In addition, L. D'Agostini & Sons (LDS) has also filed a Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) and Preliminary Injunction. The contractor requests that the Court (1) enjoin the City of Detroit from enforcing the debarment order; and (2) order that the debarment as to LDS be expunged. No hearing date has been set on this motion.*
