The Arizona Court of Appeals has overruled a judgment against Maricopa regarding its actions on a proposed private racetrack.

The court, presided over by Judge Christopher P. Staring, stated the trial court erred when it ordered the city clerk to forward petitions to the county recorder. The trial court “is directed to enter judgment in favor of appellants by 5 p.m. Sept. 7.”

The full decision has not yet been released.

The ruling gives new life to Apex Motor Club, which seeks to develop land on the northwest corner of town.
