Owners of the defunct Kalamazoo Kings are suing the Frontier League over rejection of a possible sale that led to the eventual demise of the team and removal from the indy circuit.
The lawsuit, which was filed in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan, names the Frontier League and commissioner Bill Lee as defendants. The allegation: that a potential sale of the team to Ron Heineman was scuttled by league officials in September 2011 because of issues with the sale. Because of the interference, Team Kalamazoo LLC was removed from the league.
The lawsuit seeks in excess of $25,000 in damages.
