L.A. CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS TO HOLDEN: YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN
Published February 2, 1998
Six members of the L.A. City Council on Friday "joined in a motion calling for a legal review to ensure that" Council member Nate Holden's "quixotic quest" to bring the Raiders back to L.A. doesn't provoke a lawsuit against the city, according to Beth Shuster of the L.A. TIMES. Holden: "Six councilmen are not going to shut me up. The people have the right to know the truth." Holden argues that Raiders Owner Al Davis "is close to settling a lawsuit with the NFL, which will grant him rights to any pro football franchise in the Los Angeles media market." But NFL Dir of Communications Greg Aiello said, "The idea that a settlement was imminent was not the opinion of our attorneys. I don't believe there's been any change in that" (L.A. TIMES, 1/31).
