Manhattan-based Prospect Sports Partners sued the owner of the Kings Park land where it hopes to build a 10-field soccer complex. Prospect said the landlord, Anthony Santilli and a Santilli family trust, had misrepresented the amount of valuable sand on their 44-acre site, thereby violating their 48-year lease, Newsday reported. Santilli disputed these claims. Ahead of the project, Prospect partnered with soccer club FC Barcelona to build the facilities, but construction appeared to stop in recent months. A lawyer for the landlord said the two sides are talking and hope courts can push them toward a resolution. [Newsday]
