Disclosure: Rose Law Group represents Apex Motor Club
By Raquel Hendrickson | InMaricopa
The Arizona Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the City of Maricopa and Private Motorsports Group after a lawsuit by a resident.
Bonita Burks filed suit last year alleging a permit granted to PMG by the City for a private sports car recreation facility called Apex would cause her personal harm. Burks’ home in Rancho El Dorado is 5.2 miles east of the proposed racetrack. The decision was filed Monday.
The three-judge panel agreed with Pinal County Superior Court Judge Robert Olson that Burks did not present any evidence that there would be particular injury to her and therefore had no standing to sue.
“They agreed with us,” Mayor Christian Price said. “How are you being harmed in the middle of Rancho El Dorado?”
