Default New NBA arena legal battle continues

The Seattle labor union lawsuit against a plan to build an arena south of that city's downtown is headed back to court - adding at least a bit of renewed uncertainty to Seattle's efforts to buy the Sacramento Kings.

An attorney for the Seattle International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 19 said today he will file an appeal tomorrow of a judge's Feb. 22 ruling that nullified the anti-arena lawsuit out.

The union opposes the plan for an arena in an industrial and port area, fearing it will eliminated jobs and industries in that area. It contends in its lawsuit that the city of Seattle and King County unlawfully committed to a plan to build the arena at that site prior to studying alternative sites. The suit seeks to nullify the arena financing "memorandum of understanding" between city, county and the private group, led by hedge fund manager Chris Hansen.
