TIGER FAN CLUB LAWSUIT PUT ON THE FASTRACK
Published May 7, 1996
The MI Court of Appeals said it would expedite a lawsuit delaying construction of a new Tiger Stadium by placing it on its June docket, according to the DETROIT NEWS. The lawsuit, filed by the Tiger Stadium Fan Club, claims the $55M earmarked for the ballpark from the Michigan Strategic Fund is public money and should have been approved by the Legislature. The Fan Club lost the first round in circuit court but decided to appeal. To be ready for '98, construction must begin by September. But no work can commence until the legal issue is resolved. To further hasten the suit, the Downtown Development Authority has asked the MI Supreme Court for an emergency bypass to avoid a hearing at the appeals level (DETROIT NEWS, 5/7).
