Lincoln, NE (AP) - A Lincoln resident and his homeowners association are ducking it out in court over whether the man can park his car in his driveway, or whether he has to pull it into his garage.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports that the fight began when the Bishop Square homeowners association attempted to have Matt Catlett's BMW towed from his own driveway in 2012. The homeowners association says its covenant requires residents in the Lincoln development to park their cars inside their garages, and that Catlett had been warned to do so.
A judge this week issued a Solomon-like ruling on the spat, saying the covenant bars Bishop Square residents from routinely parking in the driveway. But she also prohibited the association from towing any vehicles parked in residents' private drives.
