SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A judge has decided to wait until next week to rule on whether or a measure submitted by a group challenging the funding of a Sacramento Kings arena can go forward.
Judge Timothy Frawley said he’s likely to side with the city over Sacramento Taxpayers Opposed to Pork, but he is delaying a decision until next week and allowing the group to submit a written argument by Tuesday.
STOP is challenging whether a $258 million subsidy from the city for the arena should go forward. The group filed enough signatures to qualify the measure for the ballot, but the Sacramento City Clerk ruled there were inconsistencies and errors in the measure that meant it could not go forward.
The only response STOP has left is the written argument, as the judge has ruled there will be no additional oral arguments.
This petition isn’t the only matter that stands in the way of the arena. The owners of the old Macy’s Men’s Store building at 600 K Street have declined to sell to the city or the team. The city has begun an eminent domain process against CalPERS and the rest of the building’s owners.
