The lawsuit claimed, “The sale, however, is unlawful. By basing its decision on future benefits of uncertain value, the County violated local ordinances and state law that prohibit the sale of County-owned property for anything less than full and adequate consideration. By its unlawful conduct, the County, moreover, deprived Center Point of fair and lawful consideration of its competing bid.”

The litigation took approximately three years with the Audit Subcommittee of the Legislative Management Committee ruling that “Toole County mishandled the sale of the Utah Motorsports Campus by not following commonly used best practices selling public property.”
