Judge tosses Beech Bend suits

Posted Thursday, February 15, 2007 9:55 AM | Contributed by Jeff

A federal judge in Bowling Green dismissed lawsuits Monday filed by local landowner Matt Baker against neighboring Beech Bend Raceway Park, former City-County Planning Commission Executive Director Andy Gillies and Warren Fiscal Court. Baker filed suit against fiscal court, Gillies and Beech Bend, stating separate reasons why he thought each one acted illegally. The case was filed in Warren Circuit Court, but later moved to U.S. District Court. U.S. District Judge Thomas Russell filed separate orders and opinions granting defense motions to dismiss the cases. Fiscal court was shielded by two types of immunity, and Baker couldn't sue based on non-enforcement of a zoning regulation, Russell said.
