Lawsuit dismissed

A civil lawsuit against a banquet facility in Clinton Township has been dismissed.

Clinton Township trustees had filed a civil lawsuit against Thomas Gibson and Tilly’s Banquet Room, 2878 N. CR 41. The banquet facility temporarily ceased operations.

The lawsuit alleged there are three buildings in use for the public, including a pavilion, house and tent.

Gibson and the banquet hall had not received required plan approvals and did not have an occupancy certificate for any of the buildings, which is required by state law to operate the commercial property, it states.

Gibson obtained the proper occupancy permit for the facility, and the case was dismissed by Seneca County Common Pleas Court Judge Michael Kelbley, court records state.
