The article reports on the lease dispute of the Minnesota Twins baseball team with the managers of the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Twins reasoned that it has no legal obligation to continue leasing the Metrodome because its agreement with the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission has ended in 2003. On the other hand, the commission countered that the team has assumed a long-term tenancy and that they are obligated to continue playing at the Metrodome.
