Sacramento – A judge declined to issue a ruling Thursday in a lawsuit filed by taxpayers over the proposed public subsidy for the new arena of the Sacramento Kings NBA team. As reported by The Sacramento Bee, Sacramento Superior Court judge Timothy Frawley ordered attorneys to make an afternoon court appearance for oral arguments on Friday.
Brad Hertz, an attorney for the taxpayer groups, Sacramento Taxpayers Opposed to Pork and Voters for a Fair Arena Deal, is quoted as stating of the case, “Looks like we’ll have suspense for one more day.”
The groups filed the lawsuit after their signed petitions demanding that the public be allowed to vote on sports facility subsidies were rejected by city officials. The arena subsidy totals $258 million.
As noted in the report, when the judge would issue a ruling was not made clear.
