A: You should contact an attorney to review the lease and/or the facts about DQ's conduct that you are indicating are interfering with your business. You may have the ability to assert some type of civil claim in hopes of encouraging the mall to lease a location to your business, but again a thorough review of the documents and facts would be necessary for us as attorneys to accurately advise you. I encourage you to reach out to an attorney directly for a consultation. I wish you the best.
