AC-T:

The state Court of Appeals is scheduled to hear arguments May 19 in a lawsuit over Buncombe County’s 2006 sale of property just west of City Hall to developer Stewart Coleman.

A Superior Court judge ruled last September that the sale, which included the site of a large magnolia tree, was invalid because the county had agreed that the land would be for public use when it accepted a donation of the property in 1901.

Coleman appealed. He wants to combine the property with the site of the Hayes & Hopson Building and build residential condominiums and retail space on the property.

Arguments will be heard at 9:30 a.m. May 19 in the court’s temporary quarters at 227 Fayetteville St., said Joe Ferikes, an Asheville attorney who challenged the sale.
