STAVRO AGREES TO TURN OVER DOCUMENTS TO TWO GOV'T AGENCIES

     MLG Ventures, a company controlled by grocery store magnate
Steve Stavro, "reached a deal with two government agencies to
produce the documents for pending trial that could result in an
unwinding of the takeover."  Ventures had rejected requests from
Ontario's public trustee and attorney general's ministry for the
documents since May, but the company "abruptly changed its mind
shortly after losing court arguments about the proper legal
process for seeking the files."  The trustee has charged that the
executors of the estate of the late MLG Ltd. owner Harold Ballard
should have sought bids for its 60.3% of MLG Ltd. instead of
selling it "privately" to Stavro's MLG Ventures. The issue of
what documents Stavro "must produce could result in more court
skirmishes before the trial that is to decide ownership" (Tony
Van Alphen, TORONTO STAR, 9/20).
