Leiweke: AEG Does Not Want To Work With L.A. Memorial Coliseum Commission
Published August 22, 2011
PROCEED WITH CAUTION: A Riverside PRESS-ENTERPRISE editorial stated California legislators last week were "quietly exploring ways to protect a proposed football stadium from legal obstacles." AEG "worries that 'frivolous lawsuits' under the state's environmental laws might tie up the project for years, and wants the Legislature to head off that prospect." No one "has introduced legislation yet, but just why the Legislature should intervene at all is not clear." The editorial continued, "Legislators should drop any plans to exempt a football stadium project from lawsuits. If legislators believe such legal challenges abuse state law, they should fix the rules for everyone -- and not just for those with money and political pull" (Riverside PRESS-ENTERPRISE, 8/20).
