ROCKETS LOOK TO APPEALS COURTS TO GET THEM A NEW HOME COURT
Published January 8, 1998
The Rockets "are appealing" the January '97 court decision "forcing the team to honor its lease and remain in Compaq Center through November 2003," according to John Williams of the HOUSTON CHRONICLE. Rocket Ball Ltd., the team's controlling interest, "asked the 1st Court of Appeals last week for a quick decision so it can start negotiations" with the city of Houston for a new arena. Garry Merritt, the team's legal counsel, said that the team is "merely following the legal avenues available to the franchise" in its pursuit to work out a settlement with Chuck Watson's Arena Operating Company. Merritt: "Our view is this started in the courts and we think we should follow its course to see how it runs" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 1/8).
