ENGLEWOOD, N.J. (AP) - Officials in a northern New Jersey town are expected in court to try to halt work on a mansion owned by the Libyan government.
Englewood Mayor Michael Wildes wants renovations stopped because the he doesn't want Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi to stay there next month. The issue is headed Monday to Bergen County Superior Court.
The Libyans have promised Gadhafi will stay somewhere else while he's in the country to address the U.N. But they have also ignored a stop-work order enacted after they failed to obtain work permits.
The estate's next door neighbor filed a separate lawsuit Monday to halt the work and prevent the Libyans from setting up a Bedouin tent that Gadhafi uses to entertain guests.
