An attorney seeking to block a Walmart Supercenter near an endangered Civil War battlefield wants to get the retailer into a courtroom.
A judge ruled last week that a preservation group and residents who live near the Wilderness Battlefield in northern Virginia can challenge Orange County's approval of the store last August.
While Wal-Mart Stores Inc. was not a party to that legal challenge, an attorney representing the plaintiffs wants to add the retailer as a defendant in the trial. Robert Rosenbaum filed a motion with Orange County Circuit Court on Thursday. He also wants to add the developer and property owner as defendants.
Wal-Mart did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
