ARCHER LOOKS TO BYPASS APPEALS COURT IN STADIUM ISSUE

     Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer and the Downtown Development
Authority filed an "emergency motion for expedited appeal" in the
MI Supreme Court on a lawsuit blocking a proposed stadium for the
Tigers.  According to the DETROIT NEWS' George Weeks, Archer
fears a lawsuit filed by the Tiger Stadium Fan Club in the state
Court of Appeals will push the opening of the stadium back to '99
if the Court cannot give it the go ahead by Sept. 1.  The suit
challenges the state's right to use $55M from its Strategic Fund
to help finance a stadium (DETROIT NEWS, 4/25).
