So what is with these contractor's? You have to be born with something missing to not realize that people are going to object if you destroy their plants. Who cares, right...we gotta move those refidgerators, we gotta move those color TV's. Another good plant gone, a victim of cranialanalitis.
Sure, you can sue if you want to dedicate yourself to the hate. More often than not it isn't worth what you have to go through to get satisfaction.
Sorry to hear of your losses. I know how difficult it is to get these plants going well! Hey, if you need a caustic tongue to wag, send me the phone number of those responsible. I can pretend to be you and errr, become verbally inventive! >;-D
