Kenan Stadium Donors File Suit; Seek Information

A lawsuit even I will follow.  This seems like it will be interesting due to the firing and the allegations against the chancellor.

Boosters who contributed to the construction project at Kenan Stadium known as the “Blue Zone” are seeing red.  They have retained attorneys to explore legal action against Chancellor Holden Thorp, citing misrepresentation, possible fraud and unfair trade practices by firing football coach Butch Davis a week before practice started. “Based upon the chancellor”s public reassurances,” said Don Brown, a Charlotte attorney and UNC alumnus. “Davis would remain as coach. Our clients and many others who relied on the chancellors own words invested their hard-earned money into the Kenan Stadium expansion project.””Then Thorp did an abrupt about-face and fired Davis out of the blue, admitting that the coach had done nothing unethical or in violation of NCAA rules and regulations.”If the donors win their case, damages could vary, depending on what is learned through a Public Records request that will be filed early this week.
