 ATTORNEYS JOSEPH A. GOLDEN AND DAVID A. KOTZIAN
 FILE SUIT ON BEHALF OF BO SCHEMBECHLER
 SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- On Monday, Oct. 5, at 9 a.m., attorneys Joseph A. Golden and David A. Kotzian will file suit in Wayne County Circuit Court on behalf of their client, former Detroit Tigers President Bo Schembechler. The suit is against former Tigers owner Tom Monaghan and John E. Fetzer, Inc., the former corporate owner of the Detroit Tigers.
 The suit charges breach of contract and seeks damages for promises made and broken.
 "Tom Monaghan and the Detroit Tigers made certain promises to Bo Schembechler two-and-a-half years ago and induced him to leave his job at the University of Michigan to come and work for the Tigers," said Golden. "Bo was led to believe he had a 10-year agreement with the Tigers. We believe an oral agreement between Monaghan and Bo formed the basis for a contract that was broken when he was fired."
 Golden, a principal with the Southfield law firm of Sommers, Schwartz, Silver & Schwartz, specializes in wrongful discharge and employee rights cases. He is the president of the National Employment Lawyers Association and lectures nationally on wrongful discharge litigation.
 Kotzian, a shareholder with Sommers, Schwartz, Silver & Schwartz, specializes in employment and civil rights cases. Crains Detroit Business recently profiled Kotzian as one of six attorneys under the age of 40 recognized for his achievement, potential and community involvement.
 Golden said, "When we held a press conference on Aug. 7 we stated that we hoped we would be able to avoid litigation and reach an amicable agreement with Monaghan. During the subsequent two months I have had two meetings with Monaghan's attorneys but could reach no agreement.
 "I met with Bo last week and advised him that based on the stalemate between the parties, I believed it was in his best interest to pursue the matter in court, and he agreed."
