By The Staff

The Hill Diner, located in the 1300 block of Trinity Drive, will be heading to the auction block at noon Oct. 15 on the steps of the Justice Center in Los Alamos.
According to a legal advertisement in last week’s ’s Los Alamos Monitor, the sale is the result of a stipulated judgment from the First Judicial District Court in the County of Los Alamos in a case between Los Alamos National Bank and former Hill Diner owner Denise Lane and others.
In her Sept. 4 ruling, Judge Sarah Singleton ruled a special master to conduct the sale.
In July of last year, LANB filed suit against Chamisa Place, LLC, Hill Diner Inc., Denise A. Lane, Michael A. Lane, Lori M. Novak, the State of New Mexico Department of Labor, Workforce Solutions, Los Alamos County, the New Mexico Department of Taxation and Revenue and the Internal Revenue Service.
Also named in the suit were the trusts of Jennifer Shea Samora, Jacob Michael Smith and Caitlin Amelia Smith.
According to the legal ad, LANB is owed $991,344.83 plus additional costs and attorney fees.
In addition, there is also lien on the property, located in the 1300 block of Trinity Drive, for $28,193.02, as of Aug. 14.
Lane closed the Hill Diner in late 2012 and bought and started up the Dixie Girl.
She later sold the Dixie Girl and it is now called the Manhattan Project.
