NEW YORK (AP) — A federal judge has ruled in favor of the New York Mets in a ballpark dispute over kosher hot dogs.
Kosher Sports Inc. had sued the Queens Ballpark Company, the team subsidiary that operates Citi Field, in 2010. The food vendor claimed the team violated a 2008 contract by preventing it from selling kosher hot dogs on Friday nights and Saturdays. The company also accused the Mets of failing to provide enough vending stations at the Queens ballpark.READ MORE: Supply Chain Issues: 'There Really Are Problems Everywhere,' Even For Small Companies
