LAKEWOOD, OH (WOIO) - It's official: Lakewood Hospital will finally meet the wrecking ball.
On Thursday, a Cleveland appeals court issued two rulings, which will dissolve a temporary restraining order that prohibited the demolition of Lakewood Hospital.
These orders are final and end the 2015 lawsuit raised by Lakewood residents in the Eighth District Court of Appeals.
It was the second lawsuit dismissed involving Lakewood Hospital.
Earlier in 2018, the Ohio Supreme Court refused to hear State Sen. Michael Skindell's appeal of the dismissal of his case against the city, which alleged Lakewood City Council acted inappropriately in adopting the agreement to tear down the hospital.
The Cleveland Clinic is currently building a new emergency room and administrative offices along Detroit Road near the site of the defunct hospital.
