Question Details:

I have a house but live 1 hour away. I gave my tenants the schedule as to when to take out the garbage, but they allowed the garbage to accumulate for several weeks. They are in the process of being evicted, and now they are threatening to sue me for not taking out their garbage. Do they have a case?
