BRT owner Dan Bertram said neither he nor the construction manager of the site have been approached with complaints.
A picture frame hanging on Barbara Noone's wall kept falling off every time the construction crews across the street set off blasts, she said. After a while, she gave up on hanging it up again.
The same explosions have caused tiles to come loose in her bathroom, Noone said Monday.
Next door, the blasts have cracked a window and broken a vase at Alan Musson's house, he said. Sometimes, he said, the blasts send rocks catapulting into his front yard.
He said he invited a construction worker to look at the damage being done to his house, but was told that since the seismic meter readings were under the legal limit, the crews wouldn't change their practices.
On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.
The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.
Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.
Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
