Foreclosed Mall Sues Bankrupt Restaurant

Brockton’s Westgate Mall is suing the owner of the Brigham’s chain for closing their store in the mall abruptly and walking away from their lease. The chain is filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and is attempting to liquidate many of its assets. “We basically go through the process like any other landlord does to make sure that the tenants stick to the obligation of the lease,” said the manager of the mall, which is itself in foreclosure.
