Stadium developer says Antonovich may have conflict of interest [Updated]

The developer of a planned downtown NFL stadium took aim Tuesday at a county supervisor who has criticized stadium lobbying efforts, saying he may have a financial conflict of interest that should bar him from involvement in actions tied to the project.

[Update 3:35 p.m.: Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich on Tuesday withdrew a motion that could have slowed progress on a proposed downtown NFL stadium after the stadium developer’s lawyer questioned whether Antonovich had a financial conflict of interest in the matter.]

The potential conflict stems from claims by Supervisor Michael Antonovich's wife that she is owed hundreds of thousands of dollars by an affiliate of the stadium developer, according to an attorney for the firm, Anschutz Entertainment Group.  L.A. NOW
