Legal Question

Asked on: 8/19/13, 9:10 pm

My father owns a dilapidated shop whose ownership is in court. The shop side & back walls have fallen but front wall which is 25 ft is standing in air without any support.We have raised a written complaint in Municipal council that shop wall is in main market it is dangerous for general public it should be demolished. The DC of the city has ordered for demolishing otherwise we will be held responsible. Now our lawyer is saying we cannot demolish the building because the case is in court, it will be contempt of court. The court does not acknowledge DC order? What should we do if we demolish the wall it will be contempt of court, if do not demolish it will be contempt of DC order & we will be responsible for any mishappening?
