CHICAGO - The Summit County Port Authority in Ohio yesterday sued to recover $4.4 million after a borrower stopped making payments on a bond-funded loan earlier this year because it was unhappy with the project financed with the bond proceeds.

The lawsuit comes after Twinsburg Township earlier this year stopped making payments to the SCPA on its three-year-old town hall lease. After voting in January not to renew its $475,000 annual lease appropriation, the township's three-member board stopped making payments after March and moved out of the town hall - at the request of the Port Authority - at the end of April.
