POLLIN GETS HIS LEASE FROM CITY, BUT COURT BATTLE IS PENDING

     The D.C. Redevelopment Land Agency yesterday agreed to lease
a city-owned site to Bullets/Caps Owner Abe Pollin, according to
the WASHINGTON TIMES.  Meanwhile D.C. Superior Court Judge Linda
Hamilton will decide today whether next Wednesday's planned
groundbreaking for the MCI Center at Gallery Place can go
forward.  Earlier in the week Judge Hamilton granted a
preliminary injunction against further action by the city in
approving the arena, but ruled the city could go forward with
some action, including yesterday's meeting in which the agency's
board approved the 30-year lease with Pollin.  Before approving
the lease, the board added a provision that Washington Sports
would have to pay the city as much as $61M if the teams vacate
the arena (Jeanne Dewey, WASHINGTON TIMES, 10/13).
