Lawsuits question Paulding airport commercialization plan | AJC@ATL

A recent flurry of lawsuits is raising questions about the effort to commercialize Paulding County’s Silver Comet Field as the second commercial airport in metro Atlanta.

Three separate lawsuits — filed by Paulding County, a group of residents and the airport authority’s development partner — each ask whether the Paulding County Airport Authority had the legal right to apply for commercial certification from the Federal Aviation Administration.

Another skirmish influencing one of the lawsuits is a decision by the airport authority’s development partner Silver Comet Terminal Partners to pull out of airport bond payments in January, citing a dispute with the county. That left it to the county to make the $401,140 bond payment due Feb. 1, and led to a letter last week from an attorney representing the county, alleging that Silver Comet’s move was a breach of contract.
