Water Park Design Firm Sues Hotel Owner

USAquatics of Delano, Minn., filed a lawsuit Wednesday, claiming that a Bellevue hotel owner is using its "unique" plans for a water park without paying for them or getting approval. The suit asks a judge to declare the plans property of USAquatics and to stop the hotel owner from using them. Bellevue Days Inn owner Tom Schmidt said the lawsuit is "bogus," the result of "sour grapes" because he rejected the company's plans as too expensive and is working with another company to build the park. According to Schmidt, the lawsuit should not delay the project, which he still hopes to open in October or November.
