Zann Nelson, president of Friends of Wilderness Battlefield, and Robert Rosenbaum, lead attorney for FoWB and the Orange and Spotsylvania residents who sued over the planned Wilderness Walmart, expressed their reactions to Walmart’s surprise decision to scrap the development and build a store elsewhere along State Route 3 in eastern Orange County.

Nelson and Rosenbaum were interviewed on camera Wednesday outside the Orange County Courthouse, minutes after Circuit Judge Daniel R. Bouton announced Walmart’s decision and ended the pretrial hearing in the case.
