Judge's Ruling Signals A Green Light For The Sale of Angel Stadium
Anaheim's sale of Angel Stadium to the Los Angeles Angels will likely go through, after a judge ruled the deal does not violate the state's open meetings law.
Orange County Superior Court Judge David Hoffer's tentative ruling said a lawsuit's claim that the city's sale of the stadium was agreed to behind closed doors in 2019 is "not credible."
“While we appreciate the court’s time and effort ... we disagree with its ruling,” read a post from the Task Force’s Facebook page.
The post says the Task Force has not yet decided whether it will appeal the ruling.
The sale agreement between the Angels and the city of Anaheim would include the venue itself, as well as 150 acres of land that would be developed into offices, hotels, homes, and other businesses.
As part of the agreement, the Angels franchise must commit to remaining in Anaheim until at least 2050.
Judge Hoffer has 10 days to make his ruling final.
