A federal jury has ruled on Friday that White Flint Mall owners must pay Lord & Taylor $31 million due to a breached contract with the retail store.

The Washington Post first reported the ruling and added the jury deliberated for three days.

The ruling is the end of a 2013 case that began in the Greenbelt’s U.S. District Court.

It is unknown at this time if the mall’s owners will appeal.

The mall’s owners, Lerner Enterprises, have plans to redevelop the mall into a town center.

The Montgomery County Planning Board approved a sketch plan in 2012 for a new mixed development project on the 45.3-acre mall site that will transform the retail establishment into a complete community featuring residential, office, retail and public uses including a large central plaza, a 2.3 acre addition to the existing White Flint Neighborhood Park, and an elementary school site.
