Snyder, City Paper feud continues
Redskins owner Dan Snyder is at the center of another controversy – this time it centers around a report by Washington City Paper claiming that Snyder didn’t follow through with some environmental guidelines near his home. Snyder sued Washington City Paper in February, claiming that he was libeled by the publication. Now, it appears that the battle between the two is escalating. A story in Washington City Paper’s online edition claims that Snyder has failed to satisfy complaints from the U.S. Park Service over trees he cut down on his property six years ago. Snyder was ordered to pay fines and replace the trees because they overlooked park property. But the publication claims he hasn’t replanted any. A spokesman for Snyder said the Washington City Paper story is untrue. And so does the U.S. Park Service.
