     United States District Court for the Northern District of New York (J.C. Penney Corporation, Inc., v. Carousel Center company, L.P., et al., No. 5:04-CV-1356-FJS-DEP)

On October 7, 2009, Judge Scullin dismissed a lawsuit against the Carousel Center of Syracuse. J.C. Penney sued the Syracuse Area mall for breach of contract over a planned expansion of the mall. The judge found that a consent provision in J.C. Penney's lease, which required the store's permission for an expansion, was among the property rights legally taken away from the shop in an eminent domain action by the Syracuse Industrial Development Agency.[2]
