Monday’s Adjudication Roundup

By Jamila Moore

  • A Miami-Dade court halted David Beckham’s plan to create a new soccer stadium in Miami, which may potentially persuade Major League Soccer to expand to Miami. Miami-Dade County recently approved Beckham’s 9 million dollar bid to purchase a parcel of land. A local landowner believes the county violated state law when they allegedly did not choose the highest and best bidder.
  • The developers and managers of The Millennium Towers in San Francisco pleaded with a local judge to dismiss claims brought against them regarding their homes in the “now sinking” tower. The homeowners allege the marketing materials defrauded and/or misled them regarding issues surrounding the tower’s tilt. Millennium’s attorney explained to the court that the homeowners failed to allege a harm done by the developers and managers of the tower.
  • Kohl’s Corp. is relieved. A Wisconsin federal judge determined the corporation’s accounting practices were not corporate misconduct. The plaintiff failed to explain how the company’s oversight of their accounting errors were in deed careless.
