JUDGE RULES BLUE JACKETS DISPUTE WILL BE TRIED IN COLUMBUS
Published February 19, 1998
The ownership dispute over the NHL expansion Columbus Blue Jackets will be tried locally, according to Bruce Cadwallader of the COLUMBUS DISPATCH. Franklin County, OH, Judge John Bessey Tuesday "denied a request by attorneys for Lamar Hunt to end the case in Columbus" so it can be pursued in N.Y. The judge also granted a request from attorneys for current team Owner John McConnell "to continue the Columbus lawsuit with an amended complaint." The amended complaint seeks to resolve all the remaining issues between the parties and requests financial damages from Hunt. A trial date has been set for April 20 (COLUMBUS DISPATCH, 2/18).
