Judge: Key Biscayne’s Miami boat show lawsuit can proceed

A Miami-Dade judge ruled Tuesday that the village of Key Biscayne's lawsuit against the city of Miami over the Miami International Boat Show can continue, the Miami Herald reported.

The judge denied a motion by the city to dismiss a village lawsuit challenging the city’s creation and use of the Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin for the boat show.

The city argued that the suit should be dismissed on the grounds that the village lacks standing and that Key Biscayne's claims were insufficient grounds for a lawsuit. The judge disagreed, the paper reported, and gave the city 20 days to respond to the village's complaint.

The village has also filed an additional suit against Miami-Dade County claiming the county violated its development rules when approving the boat show for Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin. A lawsuit filed against NMMA was dismissed by a judge late last year.
