Apr. 29--GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The first of two state-lawsuit hearings on the legality of a water-quality variance issued to the Piedmont Triad Airport Authority was held yesterday, with attorneys for the two sides presenting their arguments.
But after nearly four hours of testimony, Superior Court Judge Andy Cromer did not reach a decision in the case. Cromer, of Stokes County, said he would rule within the next few days.
The variance, issued by the state about two years ago, was given to the airport in preparation for the $516 million FedEx-hub project. If the variance is ruled illegal, the project would be stalled.
