Former Jackson Homeowners Allege Construction Work Made Hill Unstable
The owners of a home destroyed in a landslide in Jackson have filed a lawsuit alleging construction work made the hillside below their house unstable.
Jeremy and Sara Budge are seeking compensation from construction and engineering companies and previous owners of a nearby Walgreens property.
Their lawsuit names more than a dozen defendants.
The slow-moving landslide last year ripped the Budges' home in two.
Authorities temporarily evacuated dozens of other homes and apartments.
The Walgreens is permanently closed.
Walgreens reached a $150,000 settlement with the Budges in September and is not directly part of the litigation.
Those involved in the case either declined to comment or did not return calls.
