TIGERS SEE PENDING LAWSUIT AS ONLY OBSTACLE TO NEW PARK
Published March 21, 1996
Tigers President John McHale said one obstacle still faces the prospect a new ballpark for the club -- a lawsuit filed by the Tiger Stadium Club concerning a $55M grant from the Michigan Strategic Fund that would go toward land acquisition. McHale said once the suit is resolved, "we can get going" (DETROIT NEWS, 3/21). Both sides on the stadium issue say they will appeal the decision to be released today by local Judge James Giddings on the lawsuit, should they lose. City officials have "said they will seek an emergency bypass that would send the case straight to the Michigan Supreme Court" (Valarie Basheda, DETROIT NEWS, 3/21).
