Gorman drops lawsuit against city after New Towne vote

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Gorman's lawsuit against the city over a controversial public housing project is being dropped.

On Tuesday, aldermen approved the developer's plat for developing land on South New Towne Drive.

Before the 7 to 5 vote though, attorneys for Gorman and Bridge Rockford Alliance filed a lawsuit asking a judge to intervene.  

Thursday, as expected, Gorman's attorneys filed a motion to dismiss the case.  

The court filing states its Gorman's belief the recording of the final plat for the subdivision will be executed properly now at city hall.

The court still has to grant the motion, which neither side is expected to object to in this case.
