Rock Hill and David Tepper’s now abandoned Panthers Headquarters project have just agreed to settle out of court for $20 million, according to a new court filing.
If approved, the agreement will end the dueling lawsuits between the City of Rock Hill and Tepper’s GT Real Estate and immediately transfer $20 million cash from Tepper’s accounts to the city’s.
The settlement agreement does not specifically spell out who was at fault for the failed project or exactly why the project ultimately ended.
The city of Rock Hill would drop its lawsuit against Tepper companies as part of the settlement if approved by a judge, court records show. https://t.co/MRt0ajRU5u
