Drainage Pipe Dispute Will Head To Trial

A judge is letting the dispute between two rival shopping centers go to trial. The firm that brought us Seminole Square wants to get rid of a drainage pipe that goes under Route 29. Great Eastern Management has teamed up with the local Pepsi Cola plant to fight the Shops at Stonefield. Great Eastern and Pepsi believe the drainage pipe might flood their properties on the east side of 29. Albemarle Judge Cheryl Higgins is letting a lawsuit that was filed earlier this year go to trial. She has not scheduled a trial date.
