Stadium News - Sort of

New, comment

Sarah Talaley gives us an update.

A tiny update: Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Jeri Beth Cohen has told attorneys involved in the case filed by auto dealer Norman Braman against the financing for a ballpark for the Marlins that she plans to rule next week on whether the stadium serves a “paramount public purpose.”

That’s the count the Marlins, Miami-Dade County and city of Miami are most concerned about because it determines whether public money can be put toward the stadium.

Cohen also must rule on whether part of the financing going to $3 billion worth of Miami projects must be subject to a public vote. The Marlins, county and city believe if Cohen rules in favor of a referendum, the ballpark would be exempt from a public vote, but Braman disagrees.

And time keeps dragging on.
