GROUNDBREAKING FOR MCI CENTER COULD BE DELAYED

     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).
