TIGER FAN CLUB LAWSUIT PUT ON THE FASTRACK

     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).
