COURT RULES AGAINST HUIZENGA, FORCES HIM TO PAY HIGHER WAGES

          For the "second time in as many years," a court has
     told NHL Panthers Owner Wayne Huizenga to "pay higher wages
     to construction workers at the Broward County Arena site,"
     according to Lebowitz & Fleshler of the Ft. Lauderdale SUN-
     SENTINEL.  The team plans to appeal the decision, reached
     yesterday by the Fourth District Court of Appeals, which
     ruled that it must pay "so-called 'prevailing wages'," which
     are required by Broward County law but were not included in
     contracts between the county and the Panthers' Arena
     Development Corporation (PADC).  PADC President Alex Mucho
     said that the decision, and the continuing legal process,
     "will have no impact on" the project, which is on schedule
     to open in October (Ft. Lauderdale SUN-SENTINEL, 3/19).
