Airport Agency Seeks Dismissal of Lawsuit

November 15, 2001|From Times Staff Reports

The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority has asked a judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed against it last month over a new law limiting noise and expansion at Burbank Airport.

The motion filed in Los Angeles Superior Court by Burbank contends that neither the airport authority nor the city supported the voter-approved law, and therefore are not adversaries.

"There's really no valid cause of action," airport spokesman Victor Gill said. "The authority agrees with the city regarding the invalidity of Measure A."

The lawsuit, filed Oct. 16, sought a ruling on whether the city could legally enforce the measure.

Measure A prohibits the Burbank City Council from approving any construction or renovation of the airport unless a number of conditions are met, among them the imposition of flight caps and an overnight curfew.
