Attorneys for the August Wilson Center for African American Culture, Dollar Bank and other stakeholders met with a judge Tuesday to discuss the $7 million foreclosure petition the bank filed last week.

The private meeting with Allegheny County Common Pleas judge Christine Ward lasted about a half-hour.

Dollar Bank claims the center — which opened in 2009 — is $7.06 million in default of its mortgage and is asking the judge to appoint to a receiver. A hearing on that motion is scheduled for Nov. 4.

The attorneys declined comment after the meeting, as did Aaron A. Walton, chairman of the August Wilson Center's board of directors.

The $40 million Downtown center, built with more than $13 million in public subsidies, ended the last fiscal year with a $1.8 million deficit.

Wilson, a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, was born in the Hill District. He died in Seattle in 2005.
