Alameda Journal: Judge limits SunCal lawsuit, city says, October 28, 2011


City of Alameda officials are claiming a victory after a federal judge decided to limit the lawsuit that SunCal Companies has filed over Alameda Point to cover just whether the terms of their former exclusive negotiating agreement prevent SunCal recovering damages.

Judge Charles Breyer said he had "a serious concern" with the legal viability of SunCal's claims for $100 million in lost profits, but would not rule on it until discovery was complete, according to city officials.
