As promised, Coyotes seek restraining order to stop Glendale from voiding lease


The Arizona Coyotes have unleashed the lawyers.

Following is a statement from the club in the wake of Wednesday’s vote by the City of Glendale:

“The Arizona Coyotes have acted to defend their rights and reaffirm their continuing commitment to their great fans by seeking a restraining order to stop the City of Glendale’s baseless attack on, and improper attempt to void, the Coyotes’ lawful and proper lease to play at Gila River Arena. The suit was filed in Maricopa County Superior Court against the City of Glendale, the Glendale City Council and other City officials.”

In addition to the restraining order, the Coyotes have said they could seek injunctive relief and file for damages.

Good times.
