For the second time this year, the University Park Alliance is facing a lawsuit.
The Beacon Journal reports the community development group has been sued by the owners of six homes on Wheeler and Allyn Streets for not making payments under a deal to buy the properties.
The suit is yet another blow for UPA, which planned to overhaul the neighborhood near the University of Akron. The group lost its major funding from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation earlier this year and was also sued by a consultant for breach of contract.
