Miami Residents File Emergency Lawsuit To Try & Shut Down Ultra
Three weeks earlier than Ultra Music Festival opens its gates in Miami, Brickell residents within the metropolis have filed an “emergency criticism” towards Miami, alleging that it violated its personal constitution in permitting Ultra to occupy Virginia Key.
The criticism boils all the way down to the settlement between the City of Miami and Ultra Music Festival allegedly being misrepresented as a license, slightly than a lease. Doing so would sidestep the aggressive bidding course of required by the town constitution.
This isn’t even the primary time that the license-versus-lease argument was used towards Ultra. According to the Miami Herald, writes Miami New Times, “the license-versus-lease tactic was first raised final 12 months by downtown residents making an attempt to take away Ultra from Bayfront Park. City commissioners rejected an settlement to maintain the pageant at Bayfront earlier than the thought advanced right into a authorized criticism.”
A consultant of the City of Miami stated , “We are reviewing the criticism and can defend the town’s curiosity.”
