Wal-Mart Sues over 2006 Kilbuck Landslide

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Wal-Mart and its real estate arm yesterday filed notice that they intend to sue a developer and others in connection with a September 2006 landslide in Kilbuck that wiped out plans for a $28 million shopping development.

The action, filed in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court, names 14 defendants, including Kilbuck Properties, developer of the proposed River Pointe Plaza on the former Dixmont State Hospital property.

An estimated 300,000 cubic yards of dirt, rock and debris slid from the 75-acre site Sept. 19, 2006, blocking heavily traveled Route 65 for two weeks and a major Norfolk Southern Railway line for three days.
