Oakland Raiders to sue Andersen
OAKLAND, Calif. -- Oakland Raiders lawyers have revived claims that accounting firm Arthur Andersen LLC destroyed evidence that could prove it lied in 1995 when it assured the team of sellouts at the Oakland Coliseum.
Revelations that Andersen destroyed documents of bankrupt client Enron Corp., and Congressional investigations into the company, have "refocused us on this issue," Raiders attorney Ken Hausman told the Contra Costa Times.
The Coliseum hired Andersen in 1995 to track applications for 10-year personal seat licenses at Raider games. The project was the centerpiece of the San Francisco Bay Area's attempts to bring the Raiders back to Oakland from Los Angeles.
