Concerned they would be seen as nothing but outsiders, the owners of the former Macy’s Men’s store building in Downtown Plaza have requested the move to Alameda County.
The ownership group includes the California Public Employees Retirement System and U.S. Bank.
The move for eminent domain came after the two sides couldn’t reach an agreement to sell the property.
The Sacramento Kings hope to begin construction on the arena this summer with it opening in October of 2016.
This isn’t the only legal trouble in the way of the arena. A judge is currently hearing a challenge to the city clerk’s rejection of a possible ballot measure.
A hearing in that case is scheduled for Feb. 21.
