Lawsuit To Block Anti-Walmart Activists From Midtown Board Fails

A judge has denied an emergency motion to block the results of an election won by two anti-Walmart activists.

DDR, the owner of the the Shops at Midtown Miami, filed the suit, arguing that newly elected Midtown CDD members Grant Stern and Peter Ehrlich do not live Midtown and are therefore not eligible to serve.

Although Walmart didn’t file the suit, activist Grant Stern told New Times that DDR was acting on behalf of Walmart.

The judge wrote that it is possible that Stern and Ehrlich could  intend to move into the district, removing the need for an emergency order.
