We’ve kept you updated on the proceedings between Lord & Taylor and White Flint Mall in the former’s attempt to halt the property’s redevelopment. Recently, we learned that Dave & Busters has also sued the mall to avoid having to move.
Today, Washington Business Journal reports that the US District Court for our area has ruled in favor of the Mall in this latest lawsuit. Apparently, when Dave & Busters initially signed their lease with White Flint Mall, they agreed to not open any other locations within a certain radius. White Flint Mall countered that Dave & Busters had violated this term of the lease when their Arundel Mills Mall location opened back in 2006. The court agreed with the latter argument and has thrown out several counts of Dave & Busters’ original lawsuit. The same judge is hearing both the Lord & Taylor and the Dave & Busters matters.
