WILL CHARGERS MAKE LEASE PAYMENTS? VOICE OF SAN DIEGO's Andrew Donohue reported there is a clause in the Chargers' contract with the city of San Diego that lets the team "forgo paying the $2.5 million rent if a 'force majeure event' prevents the team from using" Qualcomm Stadium. The term is used to describe an "unexpected event, like a natural disaster, war or other 'act of God,' that would keep a party from living up to its contract." The Chargers are claiming that the NFL lockout "is indeed a force majeure." Chargers attorneys said that the term "isn't defined in the latest amended contract, so the definition falls back to the original lease." Chargers Special Counsel Mark Fabiani noted a lockout is included in the lease (VOICEOFSANDIEGO.org, 3/14).
