OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A federal judge is considering an order that would temporarily halt the demolition of Omaha’s old Civic Auditorium and Music Hall, even though the work is already stalled.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1RsqlyQ ) that the judge could issue the order while he considers a lawsuit against the city over the bidding process. The work is already on hold because the Illinois company that the city hired to demolish the arena is in deep financial trouble.

The federal lawsuit is just the latest glitch in the Civic project.

A small business owner from north Omaha, Kevin Reddick, claims that the city violated his constitutional rights by awarding the demolition contract to DeNovo Constructors’ Inc.
