Tim McGraw and wife Faith Hill are facing a lawsuit filed by neighbors who claim their private property was damaged by the couple's refusal to clean up after the 2010 Nashville floods.
The Nashville City Paper reports that the suit, filed by Ernest and Jennifer Gendron, complains of numerous downed trees and debris piles that were never removed by McGraw and Hill.
According to the neighbors, these un-cleared obstructions resulted in a damaged drainage system, leading to the collection of water in their patio area. It has also damaged their home's foundation.
"The Plaintiffs have attempted in good-faith, to reach out and negotiate with Defendant to avoid a public and contentious legal action but the Defendant has either refused to agree to corrective action or has misled the Plaintiffs into believing action was imminent, only to take no action," reads the suit.
Tim and Faith's attorney, Bill Ramsey, also released a statement, denying responsibility on behalf of his clients:
"When you have a flood, funny things happen with land so . . . some dirt slid and some trees fell. It's really whose land is at fault. It's really like a nuisance lawsuit against the land."
