WOODBURN, Ind. (WFFT) - An out of state filed another complaint about Save Haven Baby Box in Woodburn, now claiming the box was illegally installed.
Mike and Jean Morrisey, who run Baby Safe Haven New England in Massachusetts, made the complaint with the Allen County Building Department.
Save Haven Baby Boxes founder Monica Kelsey said they've been fighting the Morriseys for two years.
The organization won a lawsuit against Morrisey for slander, defamation, interference with contracts and harassment.
The judge even issued an injunction.
"It really is disheartening to think that another person who says they're in the same field as me would attack us the way that they have," said Kelsey.
The baby boxes are heated and call first responders as soon as a baby is placed in the box.
The boxes are only allowed in hospitals and the two fire stations where they are already installed.
A bill in the Indiana legislature would expand that to fire stations across the state.
Kelsey adds she is working with the Allen County Building Department to make sure everything is filed correctly.
