PITTSBURGH (AP) - A city judge has ordered Pittsburgh’s city council president and a neighboring business owner he’s been feuding with to return to court after a 90-day “cooling-off period.”

District Judge James Motznik issued that ruling Thursday after Councilman Bruce Kraus answered to littering and harassment citations stemming from his feud with Christine Marburger. She owns a pet salon next to Kraus’ home.

Kraus has complained about her employees smoking in front of his house, while she’s accused him of gathering litter and dumping a bag of it on the front steps of her business.

Kraus says he put down the bag, but had planned to throw it away and Motznik dismissed the littering citation.

But he ordered Kraus and Marburger to return March 19 to see if they can’t mediate the harassment citation then.
