LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A study about bringing an NBA team to Louisville is causing a lot of controversy after an attorney said it’s fraudulent.
J. Bruce Miller said he plans to highlight what he calls "fraudulent information" in a recently-released study.
A group of local business leaders commissioned the study conducted by Cambridge Economic Research. According to the study, a professional basketball team would negatively impact Louisville.
Mayor Greg Fischer said the study isn't objective and asked the city to partner with Greater Louisville Inc. for an unbiased economic impact study.
The study's author said it is credible and based upon data from the Federal Reserve Bank.
Miller is expected to hold a 2 p.m. news conference Monday at 2000 Waterfront Plaza, 325 W. Main Street at the offices of the J. Bruce Miller Law Group and Conliffe, Sandman & Sullivan Law Office.
