All is not forgiven at Sun Life Stadium, despite the recent deal between the Miami Dolphins and Miami-Dade County involving stadium renovations.

The City of Miami Gardens is suing the county in an attempt to open up the land around the stadium for construction.

The suit was filed last Wednesday in Miami-Dade Circuit Court, according to the Miami Herald, with the city asking for a portion of the City Charter to be removed. They are claiming that the county and Miami Gardens never agreed on the specific details of that section of the charter.

“At one time I thought they were going to take action to modify their charter,” Assistant County Attorney Craig Coller told the Herald. “But apparently that’s not the route they’re taking.”

Coller hadn’t yet seen the official complaint, which addresses Section 9.6 of the City Charter. The way the section reads, everything having to do with the stadium properties and all zoning and building approvals, etc., falls under the county’s jurisdiction. [Miami Herald]. — Andy Kent
