It appears STOP has been stopped.
The anti-arena group has had their lawsuit hoping to essentially halt construction of the Kings’ new downtown arena thrown out by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Tim Frawley.

I can confirm that Judge threw Kings arena lawsuit out. Go crazy Sacramento, your long arduous trip is effectively over.

While there is still potential for something (any city that has ever built an arena/stadium is well aware of this) to go wrong, it appears very likely that construction on the downtown Sacramento arena will take place as scheduled.
No matter how it’s sliced, it’s very good news for the citizen’s of Sacramento hoping for the venue and for the Kings franchise/fans.
