JUDGE ORDERS RELEASE OF MLG RECORDS TO STAVRO FOES

     A judge has ordered the release of files from Miller
Thomson, the former law firm for the estate of Harold Ballard and
Maple Leaf Gardens Ltd. (MLG) to two Ontario agencies that "want
to unwind the recent takeover of the hockey franchise."  But the
agencies and the estate still need to decide what files "must be
released" from the firm. MLG fired Miller Thomson in late '90 and
the firm "resigned from the estate a few months later, after
executors had rejected their advice.  Stavro, executor of
Ballard's estate is being accused by Ontario's Public Trustee of
breaching the estate's fiduciary duties by selling himself a "key
Gardens block."  Miller Thomson had advised Stavro "not to
proceed" with the special option to buy into MLG without court
approval (Tony Van Alphen, TORONTO STAR, 10/13).
