The article reports that the leaders of the Coalition Against Public Funding for Stadiums who are named in a lawsuit seeking to protect repayment of St. Louis County's $46 million Cardinals ballpark bond issue fired back last week, charging they have been unfairly targeted for their role in promoting a referendum restricting public subsidies for sport stadiums. The coalition's leaders, Fred Lindecke and Jeanette Mott Oxford, along with St. Louis County are the defendants in a lawsuit filed in November by a local taxpayer, the bond trustee UMB Bank NA, and several governmental agencies involved in the new St. Louis Cardinals ballpark financing package.
