NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The state of New York has subpoenaed materials related to the sale of the rights to the "World Trade Center" name.
An official familiar with the review tells The Associated Press that subpoenas from the New York attorney general have gone out in an investigation into a 1986 deal to sell the rights for $10.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the probe.
The naming rights were sold to retired Port Authority executive Guy Tozzoli in his role as head of the nonprofit World Trade Centers Association.
The Record newspaper reported that the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the land where the Twin Towers stood, is among the entities that pay to use the "World Trade Center" name.
