WASHINGTON, D.C. — Madison Square Garden Company Executive Chairman James Dolan has agreed to a more than $600,000 settlement to resolve charges by the federal government of failing to report voting securities of the company in the required time frame.

According to the Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) alleged Dolan violated the Hart-Scott Rodino (HSR) Act of 1976 when he did not notify the FTC of his additional voting securities in Madison Square Garden and did not follow the required waiting period before obtaining the shares.
