Commonwealth Court tosses Atiyeh suit

Commonwealth Court tosses Atiyeh suit

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A panel of judges is tossing out a lawsuit filed against Allentown's new hockey arena.

Local developer Abe Atiyeh claims that the city's planning commission didn't follow proper zoning ordinances when the arena was approved.

He filed a lawsuit last year.

The case was thrown out in Lehigh County so he appealed to the state Commonwealth Court and now a panel of judges has backed the lower court's ruling.

Meantime another suit filed by Atiyeh -- over the Neighborhood Improvement Zone -- is still active.
