POLLIN GETS HIS LEASE FROM CITY, BUT COURT BATTLE IS PENDING
Published October 13, 1995
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).
