ARCHER LOOKS TO BYPASS APPEALS COURT IN STADIUM ISSUE
Published April 26, 1996
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).
