NBA Kings See Strong Support At First Home Game Since Seattle Group's Announcement
Published February 11, 2013
COUNTY LAW: In Sacramento, Tony Bizjak reported a lawsuit that could "derail" the Hansen-Ballmer group's plans to buy the Kings "has been set for a Feb. 22 hearing in King County Superior Court." The suit, brought by a Seattle longshoreman's union, "contends the arena financing agreement between local government officials and a potential team ownership group violates state environmental law." A win in court for the Hansen-Ballmer group would "clear at least one legal cloud for a Seattle arena and pave the way for a final environmental review" (SACRAMENTO BEE, 2/9).
