A Washington couple claims in a federal lawsuit filed Thursday that the city and its code enforcement officer violated their constitutional property rights by preventing them from fixing a property damaged by a former tenant.

Gary and Kathy Yoders claim in the lawsuit that code enforcement officer Robert McIntyre condemned the rental house on Addison Street on June 29, after the tenant kicked a hole in the basement wall and broke a water line while attempting to elude police. He cited them for failing to repair the house while refusing to let them inside, the lawsuit says.

Washington's solicitor couldn't be reached for comment.
