PORTLAND, ME (NEWS CENTER) - Attorneys for the Portland Pirates have told NEWS CENTER they have filed a lawsuit against Cumberland County and will announce the move at a 2:15 press conference today.
The Cumberland County Board of trustees cut off lease negotiations last week after some "55" meetings to discuss several lease issues. The biggest stumbling block to date has been the division concession revenue. The deal that was agreed upon in April was predicated on alcohol sales being part of the split. The State of Maine ruled including alcohol in the deal was illegal. The two sides have not been able to come to an agreement on the percentages of sales minus the alcohol to date.
