The City of Lebanon on Tuesday answered a lawsuit that claims city leaders broke the law when they annexed and rezoned land for the proposed LEAP Lebanon district in December. City attorney Rob Schein filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit on the grounds that it is baseless and frivolous, and that the plaintiffs made a “novel” and incorrect interpretation of the law. The lawsuit was filed in Boone Circuit Court, which is presided over by Judge Lori Schein. Lori Schein is married to Rob Schein and has recused herself from the suit to avoid a conflict of interest.
