Judge Health Welch was wrong in the case of Starbucks vs Simon Malls.
This is not a legal opinion, it is a business opinion.
Still, it is rare that a judge orders a retailer to keep stores open, retail experts said.
“I’m somewhat shocked by the ruling,” said real estate lawyer Joshua Stein. Welch “catalogues every possible detriment to Simon as a result of having vacant space,” Stein said, adding, “That’s part of a job description of owning real estate. You deal with it and don’t get injunctions to have your tenant continuing to operate.”
I’ll leave the legal opinion to Joshua & his fellow lawyers.
This is the activism judges that we fear. Judge Heather Welch is up for election in 2018. The voters should vote to NOT retain her. https://ballotpedia.org/Heather_Welch
