U.S. District Judge Samuel Mays dismissed the complaint Thursday, saying the company had suffered “no immediate injury,” The Commercial Appeal reported.
The lawsuit alleged legal retaliation when the city’s Land Use Control Board delayed consideration of the expansion plan. The plan includes a 6,200-seat arena, which Memphis officials believe would violate a non-compete agreement with the Memphis Grizzlies, who play at FedExForum.
The Land Use Control Board deferred action on the plan due to litigation over whether tax incentives could be used for the arena. That legal dispute remains pending.
