Bankruptcy judge sides with town in dispute over sports park

DOVER, Del. (AP) — A bankruptcy judge says a Delaware town properly terminated a lease agreement with the developer of a proposed sports park because the developer failed to uphold its end of the bargain.

In a ruling issued Monday, the judge said Delaware Sports Complex LLC defaulted on its lease obligation for the 170-acre Middletown site by failing to enter into a recoupment agreement with the Delaware Department of Transportation. That agreement was necessary because the project needed either a full traffic impact study or for the developer to participate in a recoupment agreement regarding traffic-related costs.

The developer had suggested at a recent court hearing that it may want to develop only part of the property, and that the DelDOT agreement would not be needed because of the lighter traffic.
