GM'S SCHOTT THERAPY? IF MARGE SELLS CAR DEALERSHIP
Published January 14, 1997
General Motors said it will drop its complaint against Reds Owner Marge Schott if her Chevrolet-GEO dealership is sold by February 20, according to Geoff Hobson of the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER. A sale of the dealership is "imminent" to Joseph Auto Group, and GM is "expected" to approve the sale. Meanwhile, the state of Ohio has "no plans" to pursue revoking Schott's dealership license despite GM's allegations she faked 57 car sales. Jeffrey Coleman, chief of dealers licensing for the Ohio Motor Vehicle Dealers Board: "There is nothing in GM's motion or the accompanying affidavits which appears to constitute violations over which the Bureau has any jurisdiction." Schott still faces a review by MLB, and one MLB owner told the ENQUIRER's Hobson that he "expected" the issue to be raised this week when the owners meet in Scottsdale, AZ (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 1/14).
