A homeowner on Old Boonsboro Road in Lynchburg whose neighbor challenged his Christmas light display says the neighbor has backed off. Jason Brown has put up the display for 14 years, but this year his neighbor threatened a lawsuit. Brown says he had already agreed to turn the lights on for only a few hours each evening. He discussed it on the Morningline:
Brown says the neighbor was apparently swayed by thousands of signatures on an online petition supporting the light display.
Original: A Lynchburg homeowner could face a court challenge over his Christmas lights. Jason Brown has put up his display on Old Boonsboro Road for 14 years; he says it’s a hit with family and friends, but a week ago he received a letter from his neighbor’s attorney threatening to take him to court if he doesn’t take it down. Brown says that’s not going to happen.
Brown has started an online petition on Change.org which so far has more than 55-hundred signatures to support him if the case goes to court.
