GROUNDBREAKING FOR MCI CENTER COULD BE DELAYED
Published October 16, 1995
A DC Superior Court Judge ruled Friday that city officials "cannot allow groundbreaking" this week on the downtown sports arena, according to Saturday's WASHINGTON POST. However, Judge Linda Turner Hamilton could change her mind today after she hears additional arguments from the District's attorneys. The delay is the result of a lawsuit from BET President Robert Johnson who went to court to force the city to hold competitive bidding for the project. The judge has ordered Johnson to post a $3M bond by 1pm today --money that could be claimed by the District if it ultimately prevails in the lawsuit (WASHINGTON POST, 10/14).
