    By ANDREW DONOHUE

    As the city of San Diego and the Chargers begin high-profile negotiations in the team's play for a new stadium, the two sides are set to duke it out in another venue. Chargers officials are quietly seeking more than $2.5 million in damages from the city and what would essentially be a reduction in their annual stadium rent, claiming to have lost money because of efforts to make Qualcomm Stadium accessible to disabled individuals.

    The city agreed in a 2000 contract to indemnify the team for any revenue losses that resulted from a lawsuit filed by a group of disabled rights activists. The activists claimed that when Qualcomm Stadium was renovated in 1997, it failed to comply with the terms of the Americans with Disabilities Act.</blockquote>
