The White Flint Mall and Lord & Taylor case just got scheduled Oct. 25 to 28 in Richmond at The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. The Mall’s owners are appealing a District Court decision that awarded Lord & Taylor $31 million in damages. White Flint Mall owners appealed so they can provide evidence about the future potential profits for Lord & Taylor from the redeveloped town center that will one day be built on the property. Lord & Taylor appealed because they believe they deserve more than $31 million in damages.
According to the Washington Business Journal, “The U.S. District Court jury found in August 2015 that White Flint broke a decades-old agreement with Lord & Taylor to operate White Flint as a high-end retail center by deliberately vacating the roughly 800,000-square-foot enclosed mall and voted 6-1 to award the retailer $31 million in lost profits and related costs.”
