Judge denies Goldwater's attempt to stop Coyotes deal

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A Superior Court Judge denied the Goldwater Institute's attempt to invalidate a Glendale City Council vote regarding the leasing of public property as part of a deal to keep the Phoenix Coyotes in the Valley.

Judge Dean Fink ruled that the Glendale City Council vote June 8 regarding the leasing of public property should not be invalidated based on the complaints filed by the Goldwater Institute on behalf of two Glendale taxpayers.

The Goldwater Institute's complaints argued that the Glendale City Council violated state law when it approved the leasing of public property without releasing two exhibits regarding the deal that would commit the city to paying $425 million in taxpayer obligations over the next 20 years.

The decision is a blow to Goldwater's continued attempts to stop the deal between the Phoenix Coyotes and the City of Glendale.
