Commonwealth Court tosses Atiyeh suit
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.
