Landfill on Land Equals Misrepresentation?

From Arkansas, an interesting case of alleged misrepresentation.  The parcel in question (near Fayetteville) which runs along a highway was advertised as “having commercial potential.”  Unfortunately, for the buyers, it turns out the most valuable part of the property – that is, the portion fronting the highway – had in the past been used for a landfill.  The buyers also allege that they asked questions about environmental liabilities and withdrawn bids, and were not told the truth.

Now how much does that stink?
