No political subdivision tort claim act liability against a zoning entity that refused to grant a building permit after one of its representatives advised property owners that he would allow the permit. Rohde v. Knoepfel, 13 N eb. A pp. 383, 693 N .W.2d 564 (2005). This time the Supreme Court affirms summary judgment because the city was immune from zoning actions under 13-910(4). Section 13-910(4) is clear and unambiguous. Political subdivisions are not liable under the PSTCA for actions based upon the revocation of a permit or license. The City revoked its decision to issue a permit allowing the Rohdes to subdivide their property because such division did not comply with City ordinances.
