Michael Reinsdorf, owner of International Facilities Group, and other Sports Interests, is alleged in a lawsuit (LASC BC 337 982) to have used privileged information against West Coast Arena Ventures, subjecting him to various causes of action relating to trade secrets, Confidential Information, and Interfering with Economic Prospective Advantage. The Montreal Expo's move to the Washington, D.C. area was the subject of controversy -- according to a Washington Post article, which cited D.C. civic and business leaders -- due to allegations of undue influence to block other competition for the contract for the new team's facility management, which was awarded to Michael Reinsdorf's company, International Facilities Group.

Since professional sports is usually a Monopolized and Antitrust protected business, the issue as to whether Mr. Reinsdorf and his companies, 'play' fair on a level playing field, or use their family, contacts, and name, to unfairly compete and to dominate Sports Development, is certainly of interest to Sports Fans around the world

It is alleged in a lawsuit (LASC BC 337 982) that, in violation of the terms of a signed Confidentiality Agreement between West Coast Arena Ventures, "WCAV," and Beacon Sports, Michael Reinsdorf and related entities, including International Facilities Group -- a spin-off of Jerry Reinsdorf's, Chicago White Sox Baseball Team -- elected to move forward and promote development concepts, similar or identical to West Coast Arena Ventures, cutting out its competition.

"Since professional sports is usually a Monopolized and Antitrust protected business, the issue as to whether Mr. Reinsdorf and his companies, 'play' fair on a level playing field, or use their family, contacts, and name, to unfairly compete and to dominate Sports Development, is certainly of interest to Sports Fans around the world," said West Coast Arena Ventures, CEO, David Schwartz.

Although, the case is set for trial, and the allegations have not been proven, you may take a look at the Complaint, LASC BC 337 982, or at:
