WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A Macomb County judge says a couple have to tear down all or part of their mansion because they built it too close to a neighbor's property.

Circuit Judge Mark Switalski said Monday he doesn't have discretion to approve a deal to avoid full or partial demolition. The Michigan Court of Appeals previously ruled that at least part of the 9,000-square-foot home had to come down.

Simon and Saca Palushaj (SAH'-shah PAH'-loo-shy) have been trying for nine years to save the Washington Township house.

They asked Switalski for more time to comply with a July 1 deadline, or potentially reach a settlement.

The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens says (http://bit.ly/14EdCTx ) the delay was opposed by Aileen Thom, a neighbor who along with her late husband, Gerald, sued in 2004.
