I was sued in Georgia Superior Court by my neighbor's wife for $ 40 , 000 . 00 in home repairs that she felt I was responsible for . My attorney filed a motion for summary judgment and the lawsuit was dismissed ; and , that all costs be taxed against the plaintiff . There are multiple reasons this was frivolous litigation , but it was dismissed b / c the wife is not the owner of the house . She is not on the deed , only her husband , and he is not on the lawsuit . The house was abandoned for 7 yrs and the door rotted and fell off . Many young kids were playing in there . I called the police to secure the property b / c I was concerned a child was going to get hurt . Because I told the police my 12 yr old son had been inside with the other kids , I was sued for repairs on the neglected house .
