An insurance company that sued the city of Danville last month over a claim it paid for damages caused to a business by a backed up sewer has withdrawn the complaint.
Farm Bureau Insurance voluntarily pulled the lawsuit on Aug. 31, even before attorneys for the city responded to allegations made in the complaint.
The motion to withdraw, filed for Farm Bureau by Campbellsville attorney John Miller, does not provide any explanation for the company’s change of heart.
The lawsuit alleged the city failed to properly maintain a sewer line near the now defunct Danville Christian Bookstore and Music Center. The city’s “negligence and carelessness” caused the sewer to back up into the business, located at 200 Hightower Road behind Super 8 motel, on April 15 and damaged the building and its contents, the complaint contended.
Farm Bureau paid a claim to the business owners, Harvey and Linda Naylor, and hoped to recoup its money from Danville, asking for an unspecified amount of damages.
