The AHBE former management group has taken AIG to court for breaching their policy contract. This was a statement by the previous manager Danny Ferry. AHBE included Brue Levenson, the controlling partner, into the lawsuit. The litigation has no involvement with the ownership steering the current team. The current group is led by Tonny Ressler.
In a report by ESPN, the litigation was filed by a superior court of Fulton County. In September, the AIG breached their contract and had bad faith in insurance. According to the presented documents, AIG received a notice from AHBE managing group on April 12, 2015. The Hawks ownership group reached an agreement to end the six-year relationship. Their contract was stated at $18 million. The agreement was reached two days before the sale was approved.
According to the Hawks spokesman, they are aware of the litigation. The principal parties involved in the dispute have nothing to do with the club. They have no comment on the litigation. The insurance company refused to pay premiums to the company thereby going against their policy. Mr. Ferry’s claims trigger the policy coverage. They never returned emails seeking their comment from Ferry.
