Two SMGG Shareholders Win Emergency Injunction for Demolition of Unsafe Building

Strassburger McKenna Gutnick & Gefsky Shareholders, David Strassburger and Gretchen Moore, successfully obtained an Emergency Injunction on behalf of their client, Wheeling & Lake Erie Railway Co.

Due to the degradation of a hillside in Green Tree Borough and the collapse of an office building on that hillside, Wheeling & Lake Erie Railway (“W&LE”) was forced to take a portion of their tracks out of service to protect the public and comply with the Federal Railway Safety Act.  The Emergency Injunction was granted by the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas and authorized W&LE to demolish the building, which permitted safe rail transportation to resume.
