Longmont Files Motion To Dismiss Mile-Hi Lawsuit
Longmont vigorously disputes all of the legal conclusions asserted in the complaint
The City’s motion makes four arguments:
• the court lacks jurisdiction over grant compliance issues
• there is no private right of action to enforce the grant assurances
• the court lacks jurisdiction to issue a preliminary injunction while Mile-Hi pursues its Part 16 complaint, and
• the Declaratory Judgment claim is premature and not justiciable.
The City’s detailed arguments can be read in the MTD. See Motion to Dismiss
The City also filed a motion to expedite, asking the Court to shorten the briefing schedule and decide the MTD before a hearing is held on the preliminary injunction (PI) Mile-Hi is seeking (currently scheduled for April 29). If the Court agrees with the City that it lacks jurisdiction over this matter, there would be no need for a hearing in a matter that is appropriately adjudicated by the FAA.
