Marlins Suing FansMiami Marlins owner Jeffrey H. Loria is reportedly suing a fan of the team in an attempt to seize his property, according to Tim Elfrink of the Miami New Times:
"According to court records ... Loria's team is suing a fan named Kenneth Sack in Broward County to take a $725,000 building he owns in Oakland Park—all as part of the same ugly dispute that has led the team to sue at least nine season ticket holders and luxury-suite owners since 2003."
The dispute began in 2012, when the Marlins asked season ticket holders to sign contracts stating they would buy tickets for three or four seasons in exchange for perks like "pre- and postgame buffets and private parking," per Elfrink.
Anyone else see this? Loria's greed is insane. He's bad for baseball.

I'm not even slightly surprised by this.
In fact, if I'm surprised by anything, it's that more owners haven't tried this scheme.

But Elfrink noted season ticket holders said the Marlins began reneging on those perks as attendance dropped at the new Marlins Park: "The parking spaces and private entrances disappeared, and the buffet was stocked with crappy panini night after night, they say."
Seems like the Marlins weren't holding up their end and then filed lawsuits when the shoe was on the other foot.
