Florida Real Estate developer Jeff Sherrin, TV show executive producer Oren Koules, and and long-time hockey executive Doug MacClean are three of the principals in Absolute Hockey Enterprises, the group which was trying to purchase the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Lightning confirm a lawsuit was filed between two of the partners in the ownership group.

The current owners are still hopeful they will be able to sell the hockey team to Absolute Hockey Enterprises or members of that group.

The sale of the Tampa Bay Lightning to Absolute Hockey Enterprises came to a screeching halt Monday due to a legal disagreement between Jeff Sherrin and Oren Koules, the principal partners in the deal.

Sherrin, who owns a vast amount of real estate, and the Venture Capital Group, is suing Koules in excess of $75,000. In court documents filed Monday in the 13th Judicial Circuit in Hillsborough County, Sherrin sued Koules for using highly confidential information for trying to broker his own deal to acquire the team, circumventing the partnership plan.
