OILERS AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT TRYING TO KEEP OUT OF COURT
Published September 7, 1995
The Oilers are scheduled to meet with Houston, Harris County and Astrodome USA officials in an attempt to come to a settlement on lawsuits filed by both sides. John Williams reports in this morning's HOUSTON CHRONICLE that the groups seek an agreement that would force the team to stay in the Dome through the end of their lease in '97, while the Oilers want to prevent the city, county and Astrodome USA from blocking negotiations with Nashville. A source told the CHRONICLE that the Oilers, in exchange for fulfilling their lease, want the city and county to promise not to sue the NFL in the future (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 9/7).
