A four year battle over a Blount County farm and its use for entertainment continues.
Velda Shore filed a lawsuit against her neighbor, Bob Schmidt, the owner of Maple Lane Farms, back in 2008.
She claimed that special events hosted on the property, such as the annual Strawberry Jam Music Festival, were too loud and created too much traffic.
A Blount County judge later dismissed the suit over a technicality.
Shore appealed the dismissal to the Tennessee Court of Appeals and lost.
Now she has filed an application for permission to appeal the decision to the Tennessee Supreme Court. Schmidt has 10 days to file a response. At that time, the Supreme Court will decide if the case has merit and whether they will hear it.
If they agree to hear the case, Shore will be able to file the appeal and the court would hold hearings on it.
Maple Lane Farms is known for its crops and agritourism, which includes a pumpkin patch and corn maze each fall and a strawberry festival each spring.
Schmidt told 10 News in 2008 that he has a business license that allows for "farm entertainment" and he says he follows the noise ordinance.
He also complied with the Blount County Board of Zoning Appeals decision to allow him to host only one concert each year, choosing to keep the live entertainment as a part of the Strawberry Jam Festival.
