The most recent article I can find is from October, and was wondering if there has been any progress? Guessing this legal battle will take a while

They're not going anywhere anytime soon. Our politics down here are a mess...how does a 3 week fair take precedence over a year round University.

What a $$$$ show... we can't even muscle the Fair out of the way. I was there a few weeks ago for an event (one of three they have in addition to the Fair). What a dump, their facilities make ours look like the Taj Majal. We can't FIU brass get this $$$$ done?! What an embarrassment.

The fair is just trying to milk this as much as they can. I agree with Quijote, they have horrible facilities and I personally think FIU is doing them a favor by moving them to a new location. Them crying about location is total BS as well, you can put the fair in the middle of the everglades and people will still go. I think the fair at this point is being that awkward kid that no one wants to talk with, but refuses to leave.

How likely is it that they get the 50 million they ask for AND the fair doesnt ask for more?

Also lol at the infastructure. Was at GL recently and all the toilets on floors 6 and were flooded
