Testimony begins in case involving Gurley rock quarry

Gurley, AL -

GURLEY, AL (WAFF) - A jury is hearing testimony in a 2.75 million dollar lawsuit against the town of Gurley.

M&N Materials is suing the town of Gurley, the mayor, and Vulcan Materials.

The company bought land near Gurley in 2003 with the intention of building a quarry.

The land was then annexed into Gurley in 2004, but city officials denied the company's request for a business license.

M&N contends the mayor interfered in a lawsuit deal and took the land away by limiting how it could be used.

The trial could last up to a week.
