Earlier this evening (5/23/13), Troy City Councilman Dave Henderson provided this late-breaking update related to the lawsuit on his Facebook page...
This just in on the transit center property situation... The city today filed a motion for reconsideration in the Michigan Court of Appeals today. Grand Sakwa will have an opportunity to file a response, and then the three judge panel will decide whether or not to grant the motion. The two arguments (reasons to file) are:Hopefully, behind-the-scene negotiations are going on between the City of Troy and Grand Sakwa to resolve this dispute with a beneficial solution for the taxpayers of Troy.
A) The court committed palpable error by improperly relying on extrinsic evidence to bind Troy to a "transportation center" of a particular size and scope.
B) The court committed palpable error by concluding, as a matter of law, that the transportation center was not "funded".
In our language, we're asking the court to take a look at this again, we feel they made a mistake.
Grand Sakwa also filed a Motion asking for Immediate Effect of the Court’s Ruling. We will file a response to this motion by the deadline of next Thursday.
As I promised, I'll update each step of the way as permitted, without letting any cats out of the bag. You'll hear it here first.
