BROWNS BATTLE AGAINST RELEASING FINANCIAL FIGURES
Published December 22, 1995
Dennis Kelly, an attorney representing the Browns against the city of Cleveland, said the team's financial records are "irrelevant" to the lawsuit over the stadium lease and sought to have a judge stop the city's request to make them public. According to the Akron BEACON JOURNAL, Kelly argued the "real question" is over Owner Art Modell's future, not the team's fiscal health to date. Frederick Nance, who represents the city: "The Browns have said they would suffer ruinous financial harm if they were forced to continue to play here. We are entitled to test the veracity of those claims" (Akron BEACON JOURNAL, 12/22).
