Redskins' owner Dan Snyder ups ante, sues Creative Loafing parent for its City Paper story
Just a quick update to yesterday's Venture posting on the spat between Washington Redskins' owner Dan Snyder and Creative Loafing-owned City Paper in the D.C. market. Snyder on Wednesday filed suit against against the weekly newspaper and its parent company, Atalaya Capital Management (owner of Tampa's Creative Loafing Inc.), in New York state court, seeking $2 million in general damages plus unspecified punitive damages and court costs. Here's the Washington Post coverage.
And here, if only for some diversion, is Washington Post columnist Gene Weingarten's memo -- as a fan of the New York Giants -- to Snyder for his poor stewardship of the Redskins.
