(KOKOMO) - Kokomo's mayor is taking legal action after a judge held him in contempt over a city construction project that's blocking a courthouse entrance.

The Kokomo Tribune reports that Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight filed an emergency motion Wednesday to transfer the case to the Indiana Court of Appeals.

He also filed a stay of contempt order with the Indiana Supreme Court, asserting the judge's order has impeded work on a pedestrian trail on the Howard County Courthouse's west side.

Goodnight's motion to transfer states that work on the trail was suspended Aug. 26 for "fear of additional legal action against the city and its contractors."

Courthouse access and construction of the Industrial Heritage Trail have long been points of contention between Goodnight and Superior Court Judge William Menges.
