Paducah Inn Sues KY Oaks Mall Owner

Paducah, KY – Owners of the Paducah Inn in front of Kentucky Oaks Mall filed a lawsuit yesterday accusing the mall owner, Ohio-based Cafaro Company, of interfering with its deals. The property has been up for sale for about two years and has had six potential buyers. The property's deed restricts its use to a motel, restaurant, or financial institution, but requires the mall owner's approval. The Paducah Sun reports the lawsuit will seek to void the deed restrictions, claiming they block the owners' right to sell the property. Cafaro Company claims its restrictions ensure compatibility and are not in place to avoid rental space competition.
