CORPUS CHRISTI - Visiting Judge Martha Huerta has ordered the Friends of the Coliseum to pay the City of Corpus Christi $30,000. The group had to post a bond in the same amount to cover delays in the demolition of the Coliseum as they filed a lawsuit claiming architectural and historic significance.
A judge overturned the injunction that stopped the tearing down of the building. The demolition eventually moved forward. The location is now a green space along the city's bayfront, rather than a rundown building.
In a release, City Attorney Carlos Valdez said, "Because the city considered their lawsuit frivolous and costly to the taxpayers and because the group promised to pay this amount, we decided to pursue this case to this point. Now this judgment requires them to pay."
The individuals who signed the bond and are now responsible for payment are: George E. Clower, Akbar Abba, Gerald Sansing, Bruce Olson and Lillian S. Waldbeser.
