              The Int'l Skating Union and its marketing arm, IMG, are
         being sued by a company claiming "fraud and tortuous
         interference in business relations."  Norbert Gschwend and
         Stadion "initiated the suit" in N.Y. on Friday.  They allege
         that IMG and the ISU "conspired to eliminate Stadion by not
         honoring contracts Stadion had with both groups."  Gschwend,
         in a statement released at the World Figure Skating
         Championships: "Our businesses were completely wiped out by
         the way IMG and ISU conspired to steal our ISU contract out
         from under us."  Gschwend "estimated" that Stadion lost $20-
         $30M a year in net profits.  ISU General Secretary Fredi
         Schmid said "the claims of Gschwend against the ISU ... are
         totally unfounded and will be vigorously contested" (AP/
         HARTFORD COURANT, 4/5)....A total of 95,994 attended the
         World Figure Skating Championships at the Target Center in
         Minneapolis, including 9,570 at Sunday's "Celebration of
         Champions" exhibition.  "Thousands more" attended practice
         sessions and related events (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 4/6).
