  • The 49ers were promised $40 million in state redevelopment funding, but had received only $10 million before California eliminated redevelopment agencies.

The 49ers sued Santa Clara County this week after hitting a bump on the road to the team’s new $1.2 billion South Bay stadium, which the team vows will still open for the 2014 football season.

The 49ers were promised $40 million in state redevelopment funding, but had received only $10 million before California eliminated redevelopment agencies. But when Santa Clara County’s redevelopment agency was dissolved and a new board named, it redirected the remaining $30 million to schools and local services. The team then sued for breach of contract.

A Sacramento Superior Court judge has ordered the county to hold on to the funds until a July 3 hearing on an injunction the team is seeking while the lawsuit is argued in court.
