GM'S SCHOTT THERAPY? IF MARGE SELLS CAR DEALERSHIP
General Motors said it will drop its complaint against
Reds Owner Marge Schott if her Chevrolet-GEO dealership is
sold by February 20, according to Geoff Hobson of the
CINCINNATI ENQUIRER. A sale of the dealership is "imminent"
to Joseph Auto Group, and GM is "expected" to approve the
sale. Meanwhile, the state of Ohio has "no plans" to pursue
revoking Schott's dealership license despite GM's
allegations she faked 57 car sales. Jeffrey Coleman, chief
of dealers licensing for the Ohio Motor Vehicle Dealers
Board: "There is nothing in GM's motion or the accompanying
affidavits which appears to constitute violations over which
the Bureau has any jurisdiction." Schott still faces a
review by MLB, and one MLB owner told the ENQUIRER's Hobson
that he "expected" the issue to be raised this week when the
owners meet in Scottsdale, AZ (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 1/14).
