SANDUSKY

The Murray and Murray law firm will file a lawsuit if the Norfolk Southern Railroad resumes parking trains laden with trash on the city's south side near Depot Street.

The railroad's "trash trains," carrying garbage from the East Coast to a landfill in Ottawa County, were lined up for about two weeks in late March and early April along Depot Street, drawing complaints from residents of the area. Sandusky City Commission received a petition from neighbors.

The elder Murray said he'll leave the matter alone if the trains don't return to residential areas, but if they come back to the Depot area, his firm will file a lawsuit in Erie County Common Pleas Court, seeking to have the trains removed as a nuisance.
