The Opdyke Investment Co., an Oakland County firm that owns the land across from the Pontiac Silverdome; filed suit yesterday seeking to block construction of the Louis arena. It also seeks $212 million in damages from the city, the Red Wings and Olympia Stadium Corp.
Opdyke argued that the agreement between the city and the Red Wings to build the arena violates federal antitrust laws by creating a monopoly and eliminating competition from other sports arena developers.
Mayor Coleman A. Young said the lawsuit was frivolous.
"No monopoly has been given and obviously none exists," said Young. "I think that position is supported by the fact that the Detroit Pistons basketball team is now preparing to play its games in the Pontiac Silverdome."
