Cobb residents seek to block Braves stadium bonds today | www.ajc.com

At least two Cobb County residents will seek to block the public financing plan for the new Braves stadium when a court hearing is held this afternoon on the county’s intention to issue up to $397 million in bonds for the project.

The bond validation hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. before Cobb Superior Court Judge Robert Leonard, who was assigned the case after another judge recused himself last week. Under Georgia law, court validation is required before the bonds can be issued.

Cobb residents T. Tucker Hobgood and Rich Pellegrino have filed separate motions to intervene in the case, both objecting to the issuance of the bonds on a variety of legal grounds.
