BB&D Prevails Before Court of Appeals on Litigation Concerning Client’s Authority to Develop Stadiums

BB&D, on behalf of the Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority, prevailed before the state Court of Appeals with respect to a trial court’s ruling concerning the RSA’s authority to develop stadium complexes and other issues.  The trial court originally ruled that the RSA is the proper party to build, finance, and do everything necessary to build a new stadium in St. Louis and also struck down a city ordinance requiring a public vote for funding a new stadium.  Individuals that tried to intervene in the case, but were not allowed to do so, attempted to appeal the entire case.  In its ruling, the Court of Appeals stated that the appellants were correctly denied the opportunity to intervene and could not appeal the entire lawsuit.  Therefore, the trial court’s decisions continue to stand.  As with previous litigation concerning the RSA, Bob Blitz, Chris Bauman, and Jason Turk, represented the Authority.
