COURT RULES AGAINST HUIZENGA, FORCES HIM TO PAY HIGHER WAGES
Published March 19, 1998
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).
