Documents Detail What Braves Originally Sought From Cobb County For New Ballpark
Published August 18, 2014
NEW LAWSUIT: In Georgia, Ricky Leroux noted Fairly Breeze LLC, which owns property near the proposed site for the Braves' new ballpark, last Tuesday filed a lawsuit in Cobb Superior Court, claiming that the county government "violated zoning procedures and abused its powers to rezone a property." The suit alleges that the rezoning application for the property "was 'purely speculative' and 'had none of the normal specificity required by the Zoning Ordinance,' and as a result, the general public was denied its due process rights because it did not have complete information." The complaint shows that the plaintiff "wants the zoning decision allowing the stadium and development to be invalidated; it also wants all court costs to be paid by the defendants" (MARIETTA DAILY JOURNAL, 8/16).
