Donald Trump is going after the county over its operation of Palm Beach International Airport and any expansion of the airport, which is located less than 3 miles west of the Mar-a-Lago Club.
The suit also names airport director Bruce Pelly.
The 68-page document, filed Monday, claims jets flying directly over Trump’s private club create undue and unnecessary noise at the historic mansion. It also maintains jet emissions damage the exterior of the former home of Marjorie Merriweather Post.
Trump, through his attorney James Beasley Jr., is asking the court for a permanent injunction against what he describes as a “public nuisance.”
He is seeking several remedies, including a ban on flights over or near Mar-a-Lago now and in the future.
Now how many of you who live near an airport could sue single-handedly and get anywhere?
