Maloof Upset Over Sacramento Letter Asking Anaheim To End Relocation Talks
Published March 29, 2011
PROTECTING THEIR INTERESTS: In Sacramento, Bizjak & Lillis reported city officials, "saying they are seeking to protect the city financially should the Kings leave town," have "hired a specialist law firm to help enforce a legal requirement that the Kings pay off their $67 million city loan." The City Council will be asked today to "authorize paying Meyers Nave Riback Silver & Wilson up to $150,000 to study and advise the city on its legal ability to force the basketball team to pay off its city loan if the team leaves for Anaheim" (SACBEE.com, 3/28). Dangberg said, "We are protecting the interests of the city of Sacramento and the taxpayers of the city of Sacramento. We are not accusing anybody of doing anything. We are just stating the facts as they are." Dangberg's letter also "dangles the prospect of a lawsuit against Anaheim officials over alleged violations of the powerful California Environmental Quality Act" (SACRAMENTO BEE, 3/29).
