Limited partners in Penguins ownership group suing over sale of franchise to FSG

Wildfire Productions, a limited partnership that is among the minority owners of the Pittsburgh Penguins, has filed a lawsuit over the sale of the franchise to Fenway Sports Group. The lawsuit says Wildfire, which is part of the Lemieux Group, invested $5 million into owning the team and owns about 7.5%. The group says FSG intentionally interfered with the Lemieux Group’s contractual or business relationships when it approached the owners about selling the franchise.
