Councilman Weston Lindemann, and 50 other unnamed defendants, are being sued in civil court. Attorneys for LPK Architects, P.A and Bob Luke claim Lindemann and the others made false statements in accusing Luke of fraud in preparing the Meridian 2019 Master Plan.
The suit also contends Luke was falsely accused of not properly performing the contract. Other defendants are accused of perjury and taking kickbacks.
Lindemann told the Meridian Star he believes the lawsuit is meant to intimidate the city council and is without merit. Luke wants a half-million dollars and an apology.
