Dodgers, Facility Merchandising Inc. Facing Off In Bankruptcy Court
Published August 10, 2011
OTHER SIDE OF THE STORY: The Dodgers counter that they should continue their reorganization on their own timetable, and that FMI owes the club more than $333,000. The merchandising deal, the club said in its objection to the FMI motion, carries no attendance guarantees of any type, and as a result, Dodgers lawyers said FMI is using the bankruptcy as an opportunity to amend the original deal. "Eager to get its foot in the door at a time when (the Dodgers) were enjoying unparalleled success at the box office, FMI made a deal that it now regrets," the club said in its response.
