“Oxymoronic Monstrosity”

Having lost its appeal against the Angels, the city of Anaheim will finally, and formally, end its asinine regrettable legal challenge today.

In the appeal’s dissenting opinion, Justice David Sills had aptly referred to the name Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim as an “oxymoronic monstrosity.”  Of course, if dissenting opinions were at all relevant, there would have been no appeal in the first place.

Anaheim mayor Curt Pringle had previously insisted that the lawsuit was an attempt “to make sure the taxpayers of Anaheim benefited from the team’s lease agreement with the city.” 

But with the city’s legal fees in the defeat reaching nearly $4 million, Anaheim’s “taxpayers” might be questioning Pringle’s logic.  Well, at least they managed to avoid paying the Angels‘ legal fees

Hopefully, the city and the team can now kiss and make up, in the process, perhaps, de-emphasizing the awkward nature of both the strange name and stranger lawsuit.
