Hawks, Thrashers owners settle long legal fight
Question of the Day
“At the end of the day we had a business partner we were in a dispute with and we settled that matter,” Levenson said.
“Now maybe we can move on,” Johnson said after the game. “I haven’t paid a lot of attention to it, but it’s kind of a relief.”
Levenson said he has had no success seeking additional investors for the Thrashers. He said he didn’t know if the end of the lawsuit would make it easier to find investors who want to keep the Thrashers in Atlanta.
“That’s possible,” Levenson said. “I don’t know if somebody out there was reluctant to raise their hand because of the lawsuit.”
Gearon and Levenson said they are more optimistic than ever about the futures of the teams. The Hawks have made back-to-back playoff appearances and have improved their win totals in five straight seasons. The younger Thrashers are competing for first place in the Southeast Division.
The agreement ends a long feud that had left Belkin still holding key votes in ownership decisions but unhappy with his role in the group.
