Billionaire Randy Lerner, owner of the National Football League’s Cleveland Browns, won a court order for the return of the remainder of his $40 million investment in a hedge fund that had refused to say where the money was invested.
Cleveland Browns owner Randy Lerner said he’s in talks to sell part of the National Football League team to James Haslam III, a part owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the president of Pilot Travel Centers LLC, the nation’s largest operator of travel centers and truck stops.
Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former International Monetary Fund chief criminally charged with sexually assaulting a hotel housekeeper, was sued by the woman for what her lawyer called “violent and deplorable acts.”
James Haslam III, a minority owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, agreed to buy the Cleveland Browns for more than $1 billion, according to a person with direct knowledge of the sale who requested anonymity.
Jeffrey C. Hammes has been re-elected as chairman of Kirkland & Ellis LLP’s global management executive committee. Hammes became chairman in 2010, and his second three-year term will start in February 2013.
