Saturday morning: What's in the news ...

1. Inter Miami won another round in the Florida courts when Broward County Circuit Court Judge Raag Singhal ruled in favor of the City of Ft. Lauderdale and the MLS expansion against FXE Futbol, which was seeking a temporary injunction to block the demolition of Lockhart Stadium, where Inter Miami plans to build a 18,000-seat venue as part of a larger soccer complex. With Inter Miami slated to start in 2020, any delays could jeopardize its efforts to build a home for its launch. It wants to build a stadium as part of a development on Miami's Melreese Country Club, but that effort has been tied up in approval processes. FXE Futbol's lawsuit against the City of Ft. Lauderdale and Inter Miami alleging violations of state bidding laws remains intact.
