An attorney representing New Castle County officials in a land-use lawsuit is alleging wrongdoing by county officials under the previous administration.

Attorney Sidney Liebesman told a Chancery Court judge Monday that he has discovered evidence suggesting that documents were withheld from plaintiffs suing the county over the proposed Barley Mill redevelopment project in suburban Wilmington.

Liebesman also alleged possible wrongdoing by county officials in the rezoning process underlying the proposed project.

Liebesman did not provide details but said he has contacted the attorney general's office. He also asked the judge to consider appointing a special investigator to look into the alleged withholding of documents from attorneys for residents suing the county.

The judge put the lawsuit on hold for a second time while he considers the issues raised Monday.
