Lawyers for the owner of Brothers Bar & Grill, a popular campus hangout, wanted the donors identified so they could be questioned about their finances and other details of the gift as part of the bar's lawsuit against the university.(via WisPolitics)
The school is using its power of eminent domain to condemn the bar to make way for the proposed music performance building, which would contain two concert halls and likely cost between $43 million and $51 million.
The owner of Brothers - Fortney, Fortney & Fortney LLP - argue in the lawsuit that the condemnation is premature because the building plans may never come to fruition.
