Judge hears case over new St. Louis football stadium
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A judge will decide whether a public vote is necessary on funding the construction of a new football stadium in downtown St. Louis, after hearing arguments in the case.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that it's not known when Circuit Court Judge Thomas Frawley will make his decision, though several attorneys said after a Thursday hearing that they expect a ruling soon.
At issue is a 2002 city ordinance that requires a public vote before using tax dollars for the replacement of the Edward Jones Dome, where the Rams play.
A public board that operates the dome claims in its lawsuit against the city that the law is "overly broad, vague and ambiguous."
