Brown and Mary Ann Brown, owners of property at 1009 Randle St. The suit, filed by the Browns' attorneys, Judge and Vuagni- aux, alleged that the city has maintained a public sewer system in an area which conveys water and filth from near W. Union St. onto the plaintiff's property. The sewage purportedly passes within 50 feet of the plaintiff's home without rights of easement, the complaint alleged. Such drainage is a nuisance, it is alleged, in that it is a breeding place for insects and vermin, emits a noxious odor, and soil has become eroded making property untenantable. The city has not abated the nuisance, according to the suit, and the defendants are requested to be enjoined from maintaining the discharge of the sewage in addition to the $10,000 damages.
