RALEIGH, N.C. — Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos Jr. is being sued by three of his sons for more than $100 million.
The lawsuit was filed last week in a court in Oakland County, Michigan, where Karmanos lives.
The sons say their father did not repay a loan he took out in 2013 from a limited partnership he created with them.
The lawsuit states a son sent Karmanos a notice of default on April 21, demanding a $4.3 million payment on the loan within 30 days or else the entire balance of $105 million would be due immediately.
The lawsuit says no payment was made.
Peter Alter and Ethan Holtz, the Michigan-based attorneys representing the sons, did not respond to requests for comment. Hurricanes spokesman Mike Sundheim declined comment.
Karmanos moved the Whalers from Hartford to Carolina in 1997.
