ProJo: Stall tactics and abuse of power alleged as Apex saga drags on in court
The owner of the little-used Apex department store complex is suing Pawtucket to block the city's attempts to seize the property and redevelop it.

Lawyers for four entities calling themselves "the Apex companies" filed a complaint in U.S. District court last week "to stop the systemic abuse of power" by city officials who have "relentlessly singled out the Apex Companies" and "tried to coerce them into giving up their properties."
After the PawSox stadium deal collapsed and the team headed for Worcester, the city had been in talks with Gates about buying the Apex land.

Those talks broke off last October and Mayor Donald Grebien said the would begin the process of seizing the land by eminent domain.

Grebien proposed borrowing $20 million to take the land between Route 95 and the Blackstone River to create a waterfront park with a mix of apartments and shops inland.
