CORINTH — A federal judge has denied requests from the city of Corinth and the Kroger Company to be dismissed as defendants in a lawsuit over 2010 flooding at the Kmart in Corinth.
Kmart Corporation is seeking compensation for flood damage at the Fulton Crossing location, the store’s closure for about 10 months, and flood prevention efforts in April 2011, when the store was also threatened by flood waters.
The Daily Corinthian reports U.S. District Judge Glen H. Davidson agreed to a nonjury trial for the city of Corinth separate from the jury trial for Kroger and other defendants.
The suit actions by the city, Kroger and others led to the flooding of Kmart in 2010.
