And it reached an agreement in August to sell a majority stake in the Hawks and the arena to Los Angeles businessman Alex Meruelo.
Ressler has the biggest stake and a controlling interest but details on the remainder of the group have remained sketchy. The group that owns the Atlanta Hawks and recently sold the Atlanta Thrashers has settled a $195 million legal malpractice lawsuit against the law firm King & Spalding.
The lawsuit filed in Fulton County Superior Court claimed that the owners have been negotiating to sell the Thrashers for six years, but were thwarted by a contentious split with Boston-based co-owner Steve Belkin. This is the inaugural season for the Atlanta Hawks under the guidance of principle owner Tony Ressler who won the right to purchase the club at the end of last season.
The Atlanta Spirit, which sold the Thrashers to a Canadian group in June and has an agreement to sell a majority stake in the Hawks, settled the complaint last week, said attorneys involved in the dispute. Belkin split with the group in 2005, after he objected to the Hawks' trade of Boris Diaw, two first-round draft picks and a $4.9 million trade exception to the Phoenix Suns for guard Joe Johnson, who had agreed to a $70 million contract.
It sold the NHL franchise in June to a Canadian ownership group that moved the squad to Winnipeg.
The terms of the deal are confidential and attorneys for both sides said they are pleased the dispute was amicably resolved. The other owners sought to buy Belkin's 30 percent stake in the venture and assigned King & Spalding to negotiate an appraisal process that would give the disgruntled shareholder a "fair and reasonable" value while protecting the other co-owners' interests, the lawsuit said.

Atlanta Spirit, though, contends that the fight with Belkin would have ended in August 2005 if King & Spalding hadn't negotiated a botched contract and doled out advice that was "poorly considered, self-interested, and, in many cases, blatantly wrong.".
