Lawsuit news! Nothing but lawsuit news!
- A California appeals court threw out a challenge to the Sacramento Kings arena that charged that the environmental review was insufficient.
- The Wrigley Field rooftop owners who are fighting Chicago Cubs owner Tom Ricketts’ erection of video boards and ad signs that will block their view of the field filed a request for a restraining order, so the Cubs naturally filed a request to block any restraining order.
- Las Vegas city officials have delayed a decision on whether to file an appeal of a court ruling that a referendum can proceed on the $122 million soccer stadium subsidy that isn’t happening anyway because Las Vegas isn’t getting an MLS team anytime soon.
Yeah. I think you can see why I don’t always report on every piece of lawsuit news: There’s nothing stopping anyone from filing suit for any reason, so while it’s often interesting to know what’s being challenged in court (hey, you never know what might succeed), most of it ends up being just a lot of legal fees signifying nothing, and there are more important things going on. Today’s a slow news day, though, so a perfect day to play catchup, and give you all some information for filling out your restraining order brackets.
