The article reports that a circuit court judge set a trial date in lawsuits filed over whether Saint Louis County, Missouri can make a debt service payment this spring on a $46 million bond issue for the new Cardinals baseball stadium without public consent. The trial is scheduled to take place less than a week after Judge Barbara Wallace issued a one-page order dismissing portions of a lawsuit filed by bondholders and government agencies and a counter-suit brought by the group that led the successful referendum drive last November banning subsidies for professional sports stadiums without voter support.
