Battle for new Sacramento arena continuesPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Sacramento Bee reporting on the latest developments regarding plans for a new arena that would become home to the Kings:
A leader of one of the political campaigns that attempted to force a public vote on Sacramento’s arena plan said this morning that the group will not appeal a judge’s ruling that struck the measure from the ballot.
Craig Powell of Voters for a Fair Arena Deal said the decision has been made not to appeal Judge Timothy Frawley’s ruling Wednesday that signature petitions handed in by the group and Sacramento Taxpayers Opposed to Pork (STOP) included too many errors for the petitions to be valid.
Powell said the decision was made after Frawley indicated in a hearing on Friday that the petitions had significant flaws.
