    Answered . Only if he is violating any zoning laws/ordinances. If he has a legal right to do it, your suit will probably not be successful. Check with the city and county.

    Answered . Ms. Sargeant is correct. You need to check with your local zoning ordinance laws. You also may want to check into acceptable noise levels at different times of the night and day and see if he is violating the noise ordinance.

    If you have found this information helpful, please let the attorney know by marking best answer. Thank you.... more
