Biglane v. Under the Hill Corporation

Supreme Court of Mississippi
949 So. 2d 9 (2007)


Nancy and James Biglane (plaintiffs) lived in an apartment next door to Under the Hill Saloon (Saloon) (defendant). The Saloon often played loud music that kept the Biglanes awake at night. Because of the noise from the Saloon, Mrs. Biglane frequently had to sleep somewhere else on weekends. The issue got worse during the summer when the Saloon left its doors and windows open. The Biglanes brought a nuisance complaint against the Saloon. The lower court determined that the Saloon was a private nuisance to the Biglanes. The court oredered the Saloon not to leave any doors or windows open when music was playing. The Saloon appealed.
