The National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park’s noisy legal troubles could go on until fall of 2016, but apparently use of the track will be able to go on in the meantime, too.
In a 10-page order released Friday, Warren Circuit Judge John Grise denied a request for a temporary restraining order by nearby residents of the park asking for the park to be shut down temporarily because of the noise the vehicles create. Grise said instead he wants a more permanent solution to the noise problem to be reached in a jury trial that would be held in the fall of 2016.
“The primary job of this Court is to complete a thorough and fair final adjudication of the dispute, rather than a quick and premature one,” Grise wrote in his order.
The judge said the residents can get money damages for the noise at trial and therefore aren’t entitled to a temporary restraining order.
The attorney who represents the Clark Circle residents , Chris Davenport, said his clients are in a “catch 22” situation because to show noise pollution at their homes, noise has to be there to measure and quantify.
“That doesn’t bring them quiet,” Davenport added.
Meanwhile, the NCM is still trying to develop a permanent way to reduce the noise levels, according to Charles E. “Buzz” English Jr., the attorney who represents them.
“We want to do this the right way,” English said. “We are in the process of considering all of our options. We know the neighbors have expressed frustration.”
Apparently, more details about the trial will be discussed during an attorney scheduling conference set by Judge Grise for Dec. 14 at 9 a.m.
Also, in another legal matter, the NCM will be in another court on Thursday at 9 a.m. with Warren District Judge John Brown, who will hear its appeal of the $100-a-day fine set by the Warren code enforcement board because the park doesn’t have a certificate of occupancy.
