Lawyer Files Motion Against City Over Panthers Stadium Meetings


by Caryn Little

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--Charlotte City Council may have broken the law by holding closed door discussions about paying for upgrades to Bank of America Stadium. 

Charlotte attorney Paul Whitfield filed a contempt of court motion against the city Tuesday.  Whitfield represents a group of residents. 

They say Mayor Foxx and City Council broke the state's open meetings law when they held closed door meetings and a secret vote on a proposed tax hike to pay for stadium upgrades. 

They are asking for a fine of at least $1.4 million.
