Quicken Loans Arena referendum headed to Ohio Supreme Court

Battle of Q renovation headed to Ohio Supreme Court

CLEVELAND - The battle over the Quicken Loans Arena renovation deal is now headed to the Ohio Supreme Court.

Cleveland city leaders announced Monday that they are asking the high court to decide if they must take action on referendum petitions seeking to repeal the City Council's approval of the $140 million dollar upgrade. 

Greater Cleveland Congregations and other groups submitted the petitions, which initially council refused to accept. Those who oppose the project believe that denying residents a vote on the matter is unconstitutional.

Watch Mayor Frank Jackson and City Council President Kevin Kelley discuss the decision to take the matter to the Supreme Court below:
