Sharks Sue Over Downtown Extension

It’s only been a week since BART officially approved its extension into downtown San Jose and Santa Clara, and already, it’s facing a lawsuit that could potentially delay the project.

The Sharks Sports & Entertainment company hit the agency Thursday afternoon with a lawsuit alleging that it, along with the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA), failed to adequately plan for construction impacts and lost parking near the SAP Center, where hockey games and concerts are held.

Company representatives were very clear: “We are completely supportive of BART coming to San Jose,” said Sharks Sports & Entertainment President John Tortora. But, he added, the concerns about parking and construction must be addressed. The company manages the SAP arena and owns the team.
