Mac Haik has withdrawn opposition to the Gluckstadt incorporation and Canton annexation attempts scheduled for trial next month. 


Chancery Judge James Walker signed orders today granting Haik's motion to withdraw objections to both the incorporation and annexation. Haik owns two new car dealerships built within the last couple of years on land in the proposed incorporation and annexation zones.


In late-October 2018, Haik filed a motion asking Judge Walker to order incorporators to work their differences in mediation, something that was denied in December 2018.


The trial is scheduled to begin Feb. 4 and the courtroom is booked for the entire month for the hearings. The incorporation effort has been consolidated with an annexation attempt by the City of Canton, wherein two of six proposed annexation areas overlap. Onearea in question contains the two automobile dealerships owned and operated by Haik.
