Citizens group files suit to stop Wal-Mart

By Ian Thompson

SUISUN CITY - The Suisun Alliance on Thursday filed a lawsuit to overturn the City Council's approval last month of a Wal-Mart Supercenter in eastern Suisun City.

The lawsuit also seeks a retraining order to stop any work on the 227,000-square-foot retail and grocery center at Walters Road and Highway 12, according to the document filed with the Solano County courts.

Suisun City Mayor Pete Sanchez called the development unsurprising and anticlimactic.

"We never entertained any thought that this was going to be a breeze," Sanchez said. "It will delay this project a few months, but we are very confident that we have covered all the bases and that our final Environmental Impact Report will hold its own in court."
