Manny vows to fight for land

By mrasor Published: July 24, 2007

The ABJ's Carol Biliczky wrote a fascinating article about Manuel Nemer and the impending eminent domain battle for his businesses on Exchange Street.
The story suggests Manny wants more than fair market value for his businesses -- Manny's Pub and Aroma Coffee and Tea. He wants to be part of the new stadium complex, or at least nearby.
In the end, the businesses cannot stay. They absolutely are part of the university's stadium complex plan. It probably will come down to UA helping Manny stay on the Zip Strip in a different location, or UA not helping Manny and having to go to court.
If I came to America with $6, I'm pretty sure I'd be pretty strong willed to keep my businesses, too.
