Rialto's Day In Court

Posted By on Tue, Jul 21, 2009 at 1:55 PM

The Rialto Foundation is scheduled to be in court today to find out whether Don Martin and Scott Stiteler will be successful in getting an order to evict the non-profit organization from the space it's using as a green room, office space and storage. We'll have details following the hearing.

Meanwhile, negotiations continue with Martin and Stiteler, who own the block surrounding the city-owned Rialto Theatre, and various downtown players to work out a deal that would allow the Rialto to continue using the space.

If you're interesting in helping out the theatre, why not consider becoming a member of the Rialto Foundation? Your tax-deductible contribution could help them through this tough time.

UPDATE: Judge Michael Miller heard testimony this afternoon from Don Martin and Michael McGrath, the attorney for the Rialto Foundation. Martin said the foundation had no lease and no agreement to remain in the space they're occupying; McGrath testified that he worked out an oral agreement with Martin in February 2008 that the Foundation would get 60 days notice before it would have to move if Martin wanted them out. The trial is expected to wrap tomorrow morning.
