Patriot Place Gets OK For Expansion; Kraft Group, Foxboro Still At Odds Over Insurance
Published July 8, 2013
INSURANCE POLICY: In Boston, Michele Morgan Bolton noted Saturday's MLS Revolution game at Gillette Stadium went forward "without a license, the latest in a clash between" The Kraft Group and Foxboro. Lawyers were "unable to iron out a liability insurance disagreement before a Friday deadline, after months of negotiations." Foxboro officials "held back the license for the New England Revolution game as well as those for upcoming concerts by Bon Jovi and Taylor Swift in a bid to force the company to help pay new, high deductibles on potential litigation from stadium events." The town’s insurance carrier recently "hiked the per-person deductible on the municipal policy from $7,500 to $50,000 per potential claimant, effective July 1" (BOSTON GLOBE, 7/6). Kraft Group General Counsel James Cobery said that "notifying all [Revolution] ticket holders that the event might be cancelled would invite, 'chaos,' and that cancellation of the soccer match could weaken the stadium's ability to attract events" (FOXBORO REPORTER, 7/5).
