THE ONUS OF PROOF IS ON MONUS
Published November 4, 1994
Lawyers for former Rockies part owner Mickey Monus concluded their arguments in his case seeking $23M in compensation for his former 10% stake in the club. Monus sold his share for $300,000 in '92 but now claims insolvency, saying he was "foggy" due to prescription drugs he took before he signed the deal. Rockies lawyers contend that Monus "got out of the Rockies exactly what he put in --about $300,000, most of it borrowed." Monus was fired as Phar-Mor President in '92 and later charged with 123 counts of fraud. Rockies officials "say privately that Monus has little chance" of being reinstated to club ownership and that the case is "a money case." The Rockies begin making their case today (Paul Hutchinson, DENVER POST, 11/3).
