The Cleveland Synergy Foundation claims that the Federation of Gay
Games conspired with a high-ranking city official to end the Games'
license with Synergy, which was contracted to orchestrate the 2014 Gay
Synergy's lawsuit against the city, the federation, the Cleveland Sports Commission, and the mayor's chief of governmental affairs was filed Thursday in Cuyahoga County Common Please Court, according to Cleveland's Plain-Dealer.
Despite rumors that that the Gay Games may move to Washington, D.C., because of the flap, games spokesman Kelly Stevens said the federation's leaders approved a resolution in August affirming the games would remain in Cleveland.
