NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A legal battle is brewing over a popular East Nashville meat and barbecue market.
A neighbor is suing claiming it interferes with the enjoyment of her home. One question now before the court is whether the smell of the grilling and smoked meats qualifies as a nuisance.
The lunch rush is busy at Roy’s Meat Service there on 19th Street in East Nashville.
For the past nine years, Jeff Roy has been serving up takeout meals from his market.
But not everyone is happy. A woman moved into the home backing up to Roy’s two years ago. She alleges — among other things — that part of the store encroaches on her property, and smoke from his constant grilling is a nuisance.
The plaintiff Natalie Castillo and her attorney declined to comment on this story and said their lawsuit speaks for itself.

Not saying it explains a lot, but sure as heck it pushes you in one direction.
I might be wrong.
