Milwaukie, Oregon – A Milwaukie man’s legal battle with Tri Met won’t be resolved for at least a few more months. A jury trial was set for today. But Bill Corti says he’s been told its been delayed until November because a judge was not available.
He says light rail construction has cut off access by car to a home he rents out. Tenants now have to park a block away. Corti says Tri Met’s told him ” they’re leaving it to me to figure out how to get access into it after they’re finished with construction. They say its a valuation matter to them and they said they’re leaving it up to me to figure out how to get access into it.”
He wants Tri Met to foot the bill for building a new driveway to the home on S.E. Monroe St.Tri Met says it does not comment on pending litigation.
