Baker Sues Fiscal Court Over Beech Bend Ordinance

By Gene Birk | 

Matt Baker says there are two essential points to his lawsuit: That Warren Fiscal Court was bound by Special Judge Tyler Gill's order ruling the road was Baker's private property, and that the Fiscal Court's attempt to take private property from one person and give it to another private entity, is not a governmental purpose.

That private entity is Beech Bend Raceway Park owned by Dallas Jones. And Jones has filed an appeal of Judge Gill's ruling to the Kentucky Court of Appeals. That could take up to two years to resolve.

Warren Fiscal Court's attorney had not yet seen the lawsuit at news time, and could not comment on it.
