Court Rules In Favor Of Midtown Walmart, But Activists Say They Will Appeal

A three judge panel ruled in favor of Walmart opening a new store in Midtown, but opponents vow to appeal again.

Walmart had reduced the number of loading berths at the store from five to three following another court decision last year, but Walmart foes wanted the city to go through a second public hearing process for the already approved design. The court ruled that a second hearing wasn’t required.

Walmart has already closed on the purchase of the land. Opponents, who frequently criticize Walmart’s treatment of employees on social media, say they will file an appeal of the latest ruling ‘with more legal help this time.’
