Attorney: Lawsuit Won't Disrupt Stadium Renovation Project

An attorney for the University of Oklahoma said a new lawsuit over the stadium's renovation project will not disrupt the 2016 football season.

"Given the subject matter of the suit — i.e. terrazzo flooring installation — there should be no interruption or delay in the stadium's completion because this installation is not slated to take place prior to the 2016 season and will occur later in the project's timeline," the attorney, Anil Gollahalli, said. "Unfortunately, given the complexity of the work undertaken in large construction projects, disputes sometimes arise and need to be addressed."

In the lawsuit, a terrazzo flooring company has alleged its bid for work on the university's football stadium expansion project was denied because of a "superfluous requirement."
