Henderson Sues Outside Lancaster County

NewsLanc has learned that former County Commissioner Molly Henderson's lawsuit against Lancaster Newspapers was filed in Chester County.

Lawsuits can be initiated and heard in any county in which the defendant does business. Lancaster newspapers are sold in Chester County.

It is regrettable that the Convention Center Authority's and Penn Square Partners' lawsuits against the County Commissioners were not tried in a neutral county. If so, upscale condominiums in a mix-used building might be underway on the Watt & Shand site rather than the convention center project.
