Silverdome sale okayed
A judge told some residents of Pontiac, Michigan he won't stop the sale of the empty Pontiac Silverdome to a Canadian company which plans to use it for sporting events. The residents sued to block the sale of the Silverdome for $583,000 because it cost $56-million when it was built in 1975. The judge ruled the residents appeared to have no legal standing to intervene. The city sold it because a new stadium was built as the home of the Detroit Lions of the NFL. Pope John Paul the Second, Michael Jackson and the Rolling Stones all appeared at the 80-thousand seat stadium.
