MORGANTOWN (AP) — An ex-chairman of the state Republican Party and his three brothers will appeal a federal judge's decision dismissing their lawsuit against the city of Morgantown.

Kris Warner and brothers Ben, Monty and Mac sued a former city manager and fire chief, along with code-enforcement officers and fire marshals in 2010.

They say a years-long pattern of intimidation led to the collapse of their businesses and bankruptcy.

They argued the city was unfair in its enforcement, issued vague and arbitrary citations, and delivered unreasonable remediation orders.

U.S. District Judge Irene Keeley ruled recently that the Warners may not have liked the city's style, but its actions didn't constitute outrageous conduct.

Kris Warner told the Dominion Post (http://bit.ly/YcJxUt) Friday he'll go to the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va.
