Re: Time to file tort claim against a city

It is unclear that you would have any claim to file. If you are violating city codes and ordinances, you can only rarely complain that you must follow the law. You can contact the local officials to determine the basis for the violations and ask why others are not being handled as you are. Selective prosecution claims are difficult. You might be able to sue for mandamus to force the enforcement people to perform their duties.
