"There's no way in the world that I can ever sell my house or much less even live in my house with the way it is right now," said Torres, who used to own SDT Waste & Debris Services and recently opened a resort in the Bahamas called the Cove. "When you go in the backyard, it sounds like you're at a club."
The lawsuit claims that the live music at Buffa's has damaged Torres' property value at 1011 Esplanade Ave. and caused significant pain and suffering. It also claims that the city wrongfully issued the bar a live music permit. It calls for an injunction to stop the performances and requires the owners to regularly measure the sound levels to ensure they are not exceeding the legal limit.
