PHOENIX —The developers of a private motor park in Maricopa and the city won back-to-back victories in court this week.
The Arizona Supreme Court denied a request to review a petition filed by plaintiffs in a lawsuit against Private Motorsports Group and the city of Maricopa.
A political action committee, known as Maricopa Citizens Protecting Taxpayers, appealed to the Supreme Court after the Arizona Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the developers and the city.
After reviewing the plaintiffs’ petition, the Supreme Court decided Wednesday afternoon not to review the matter. A written opinion from the appellate court will be released at a later time.
The lawsuit involves a permit the Maricopa City Council granted PMG in April to build a 280-acre facility, known as APEX. A petition signed by hundreds of residents was submitted to the city, asking that the permit be made into a ballot initiative.
