WOONSOCKET â€“ A Superior Court judge postponed the foreclosure of Walnut Hill Plaza until Feb. 28 after the owners filed a lawsuit against the lenders who hold the mortgage on the shopping center.
Papers filed in the case indicate the owners of the strip mall arenâ€™t necessarily opposed to relinquishing the title to the lenders, but theyâ€™d prefer a â€ślike kindâ€ť transfer that would shield them from certain tax liabilities.
