Mountain View officials say they have identified more than $80 million worth of hidden revenues at Shoreline Amphitheatre, quadrupling the amount previously alleged and raising the city's claimed damages to $15.6 million.
In a blistering report issued late Thursday afternoon, city finance director Bob Locke said venue operator Clear Channel "went to incredible lengths to divert, mischaracterize and then conceal revenues." He also accused the company of interfering with and stonewalling the city's efforts to conduct audits.
