BILOXI, Miss. (AP) — The city of Biloxi has filed a lawsuit against Biloxi Baseball and Overtime Sports Management, owners of the Biloxi Shuckers.
The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/2h25LxA) the city says in the lawsuit that it has been unable to determine how much Biloxi Baseball owes the city for rent, advertising and ticket sales under a stadium lease because Biloxi Baseball and Overtime Sports has failed to account for its sales.
Biloxi Baseball has paid the city $146,450 in rent through Oct. 1, claiming it is due a discount of $153,550 under the terms of the lease. The city denies the discount, or “offset” is owed.
In the lawsuit filed Monday, the city wants a court-ordered accounting of proceeds the companies have taken in from the stadium and payment of any amounts owed.
