ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) - Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper’s companies and the City of Rock Hill are being sued by South Carolina’s York County for at least $21 million over the failed completion of the team’s proposed $800 million practice facility and headquarters.

The structure remains half-built in Rock Hill, South Carolina, with no plans of being finished.

Tepper’s real estate company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in Delaware on June 2 after having invested more than $175 million into the facility.

It’s located about 25 miles south of the team’s current downtown stadium and headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina.
