UPDATE: Argument On Motion To Dismiss The Diamondbacks vs Maricopa County Lawsuit Re-set To July 31

(UPDATE: Judge Karen Mullins and the parties agreed to push back the 1-hour oral argument on the Motion to Dismiss until July 31, at 9:00a.m.)

A June 28 hearing was set today on Maricopa County's Motion to Dismiss the lawsuit filed by the Arizona Diamondbacks' ownership in an effort to get out of their lease for taxpayer-owned Chase Ballpark.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Karen Mullins has reserved one hour for oral arguments on the County's motion.

The Diamondbacks filed the legal action in January (read complaint at link) asking the Court to let the team out of its long-term lease early due to the County's alleged failure to keep up on promised repairs. The County hired outside counsel (Cameron Artigue from Gammage & Burnham) and filed the pending motion to dismiss the action.

In a related note, Arizona's Politics is separately reporting that the Diamondbacks were apparently able to distribute monies to investors in 2016, for the first time in several years.
