OAKLAND AUTHORITY MEMBERS WANT TO SETTLE SUIT WITH RAIDERS
Published May 6, 1998
Although Oakland city and Alameda county officials "haven't spoken to the Raiders" since they filed suit against them in September, "now -- just a month before Election Day -- two mayoral candidates say an olive branch has been extended to the team," according to Laura Counts of the OAKLAND TRIBUNE. Ignacio De La Fuente, a city council member who serves on the Coliseum Authority, said he has crafted "a comprehensive proposal" to resolve the lawsuit if a meeting with the Raiders can be arranged. County Supervisor Mary King, who chairs the Authority, said that a letter has been sent to the Raiders requesting a settlement meeting before a May 15 court date. Both candidates deny that any "settlement proposal" is timed to coincide with the election (Laura Counts, OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 5/5).
