ACOG SUED BY STADIUM DESIGNERS
Published March 14, 1996
Olympic stadium designers filed a $4M lawsuit Wednesday against ACOG, claiming they spent 47,600 unpaid overtime hours drawing the "ever-changing" facility, according to the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. The suit, the first by a major ACOG contractor, portrays designers as laboring under "chaotic conditions" and alleges organizers "know they will have no assets left to compensate" them after the Games. The design team is made up of four firms: Ellerbe Becket, Heery International, Rosser International, and Williams, Russell & Johnson (Michelle Hiskey, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 3/14).
