Landlords Object to Movie Gallery Plan

A second group of landlords who lease space to Movie Gallery Inc. have objected to the company's plan for conducting going-out-of-business sales, saying the plan doesn't adequately protect their interests.

On Wednesday, about a dozen landlords who lease space to the movie rental chain at 113 locations asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Richmond, Va., to modify the plan with their suggestions or throw it out.
