LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A lawsuit has been filed against the Louisville Metro Council over a decision involving a proposed low-income housing project.

Hundreds attended public zoning meetings showing opposition to the project. In the end, the vote was close but the project failed 14-11.

The lawsuit filed by the Prospect Cove developer is asking for the vote denying the zoning change be overturn which would allow them to again move forward with construction.
