Suit Says Proceeds of RCA Dome Auction Should Go to Taxpayers

June 18, 2010 Updated Mar 18, 2008 at 8:31 AM EDT

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A lawsuit says that proceeds from the
auction of seats, pieces of turf, and even urinals from the
soon-to-be demolished RCA Dome should go to taxpayers, not charity.

The suit filed by an Indianapolis law firm asks a judge to
freeze the auction proceeds that are to go to the Indianapolis
Colts Foundation and the Indiana Sports Corporation. An attorney says the more than 1 million dollars the auction may
raise should go to pay off the debt on the Dome.

The agency that owns and operates the Dome says the charities
deserve the auction proceeds because they're handling the auction
and the Colts are allowing their name and logo to be put on the
items. The RCA Dome is scheduled to be demolished and replaced by the new Lucas Oil Stadium.
