Seymour Perkins loses

Seymour Perkins has lost, and his house will be torn down.

From WOAI:
The city is moving forward with plans to tear down a controversial house on the east side. A judge has ruled crews can demolish Seymour Perkin’s home, which police say is a haven for drug addicts and prostitutes.

Previous stuff here.

UPDATE: Perkins gets another reprieve: "Even as a bulldozer was prepared to raze the home at the corner of Nevada and East Hackberry roads, the attorney for homeowner Seymour Perkins stood in front of the construction vehicle as he sought a halt to the city's actions."

He gets time to prepare an appeal.

Not so quick.... I think the Reverend got himself some sort of injunction.

Honestly, I think the Ho's and dealers are just gonna stick around that area anyway, demolished house or not. They wouldn't be there if there weren't clients.
