ASU President Michael Crow, who also spoke at the event, questioned how the attorney general’s office could sue a state body when the office also represents them in other matters.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced Thursday that his office filed an amended complaint against the Arizona Board of Regents in a lawsuit over Arizona State University’s real estate deals.

The amended complaint adds a claim that ASU’s deal with Omni Hotel for a project located at University Drive and Mill Avenue is unconstitutional.

“In our complaint we claim that the Board of Regents is violating the (Arizona Constitution’s) gift clause by essentially giving $38 million upfront in discounted property values to (an) out-of-state hotel corporation in order to build a hotel and conference center in Tempe,” Brnovich told KTAR News 92.3 FM on Thursday.

The attorney general’s office said ASU gave Omni Hotel those millions in discounted property valuation and funding for a conference center and parking garage.
