Negligent setbacks?

That's what this Colorado lawsuit is arguing related to a recent traffic accident that resulted in a fatality:
Both the Colorado Department of Transportation and the city of Aurora are being sued in connection with Havana being widened in 2003 to only 7 feet from a Baskin-Robbins.

Aurora City Attorney Charlie Richardson said the claim against the city is puzzling.

"It is certainly the first time that someone has alleged that an injury is due to improper setback on a city street and state highway," Richardson said.
