Super Bowl Stadium Sued over Turf
The company that installed the turf at the venue where the Super Bowl is being played is suing MetLife Stadium operators and a Georgia company for more than $292,000.
Taylor Turf "claims it still is owed for hustling to install the New Jersey stadium's playing surface last summer."
According to the Associated Press, "Taylor Turf's lawsuit in New Jersey's Bergen County Superior Court names New Meadowlands Stadium Co. LLC and Dalton, Ga.-based Turf Industry Inc., doing business as UBU Sports."
Kelly Taylor, the president of the company, said that they were "beaming with pride" because they "knew this field would be seen all over the world, so we gave it our best."
The company reportedly "expedited the MetLife work, completing the $417,000 job last July in 11 days — roughly half the typical time requirement." But the payments reportedly stopped after UBU Sports' initial $125,000 payment.
A MetLife Stadium spokeswoman told the Associated Press that Taylor Turf's dispute should solely be with UBU Sports before saying that MetLife Stadium has "been in contact with UBU and have indicated that we expect them to resolve this matter quickly and amicably."
