Dallas Stars Get Approval to Auction Team; Greenberg to Bid

Sept. 22 (Bloomberg) -- The Dallas Stars, the bankrupt National Hockey League team, won court permission to sell itself at an auction in which hotelier Tom Gaglardi may compete with lawyer Chuck Greenberg, a former co-owner of the Texas Rangers.

Greenberg plans to bid for the team when the auction is held Nov. 21 in Dallas, his attorney, Thomas Lauria of White & Case LLP, said during a court hearing today in Wilmington, Delaware.

“We have a level playing field,” Stars bankruptcy attorney Martin Sosland said in court. Bids for the auction are due 30 days from today, under rules approved by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Peter Walsh.

The Stars filed for bankruptcy on Sept. 15 with a plan pre-approved by its lenders to sell the team at an auction with a so-called stalking horse bid from Gaglardi, a Vancouver-based businessman, who, with his family, owns Sandman Hotels, Inns & Suites; Denny’s Restaurants; and the Kamloops Blazers Hockey Team.

The case is Dallas Stars LP, 11-12935, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, District of Delaware (Wilmington).
