Judge dismisses lawsuit aimed at stopping Nashville MLS stadium. State Fair to move to Wilson County

Judge dismisses lawsuit aimed at stopping Nashville MLS stadium construction

The Tennessean - ... Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle dismissed the lawsuit from Save Our Fairgrounds on Tuesday with prejudice — meaning plaintiffs may not re-file the case. 

 "[T]he Court concludes that the Plaintiffs have not proven that the construction and operation of the Development on the Fairgrounds Nashville Property is ultra vires, a breach of fiduciary duty or violates the Metro Charter," Lyle wrote in her 64-page opinion. "The evidence showed that there is no intent or design of Metro or the Intervening Defendants to destroy or eliminate the Existing Uses."  ....

She dismissed the group's claim that the project would interfere with a fair,
ruling construction and operation of the stadium at the fairgrounds could co-exist and the stadium and the mixed-use building would actually help the event. 

However, the Tennessee State Fair and Exposition Commission unanimously approved Monday a recommendation to make the Wilson County Fair the new site for the Tennessee State Fair.
