I haven't dug into the lawsuit, but it's interesting. AZAG alleges that ASU's real estate wheeling and dealing is against Arizona law. The news reporting focuses on the Omni Hotel, Mill and University I think. The special tax district from the legislature is probably going to be fine. This is the cornerstone of athletic funding outside what comes from the P12 Conference.
Regardless, this lawsuit was NOT necessary, and I will never vote for Mark Brnovich again. FWIW, Mark Brnovich is an Arizona native, ASU Sigma Pi. It is not fun to choose to no longer support such a politician, and perhaps reactionary of me to abandon what sounds like sound public policy (Publicly funded schools don't get to use their special benefits to generate revenue), but screw it. He unnecessarily sued the Sun Devils, in such a way that funding to the football team is threatened. It's like he didn't learn anything at ASU.
Give Mark Brnovich HELL, Devils
