The lawyer representing the interests of the Antigua and Barbuda Airport Authority (ABAA), in the Barbuda airport construction case is seeking to have the agency excluded from the lawsuit which was filed against the government by Barbudans Jacklyn Frank and John Mussington.
ABAA is listed as the second defendant in the high profile case.
Attorney-at-Law Hugh Marshall Jr. presented the application to the judge in the High Court earlier this week. The confirmation comes from government’s attorney in the matter, Dr. David Dorsett.
He explained that the decision has been reserved and lawyers involved in the ongoing case will be informed in due course when the judge issues a decision.
Through their lawyer, Frank and Mussington were successful in August in petitioning the court for an injunction to stop work on the airport project, citing environmental issues. However, the injunction was lifted on September 11, after an appeal was filed by attorneys acting on behalf of the government.
Dr. Dorsett has subsequently said that work on the project continues.
