Businessman Collier Merrill and Ray Rissenberger sue City of Pensacola

PENSACOLA   --  Pensacola businessmen Collier Merrill and Ray Russenberger are suing the City of Pensacola over restaurant leases.

In November, the city sent a notice of default to Merrill and Russenberger.
Merrill is co-owner of the Fish House and Atlas Oyster Bar.
   
Both are built on city property leased by Russenberger and subleased to Merrill.
   
The city claimed they were entitled to a percentage of sales stretching back 13 years.

But in December, they agreed to rescind the notice.
Now, Merrill and Russenberger hope to prove they were never in default.
