ATLANTA (AP) - The Georgia Supreme Court is set to hear arguments Tuesday in an appeal of a lower court ruling on financing for the new Braves baseball stadium in Cobb County.

Three Cobb County residents opposed the authorization of the bonds, arguing the bonds required taxpayer approval. A Cobb County Superior Court judge in July validated the bonds, ruling that no public referendum was necessary.

The three residents - attorney T. Tucker Hobgood, Larry Savage and Richard Pellegrino - have appealed the judge’s ruling to the Supreme Court.

The new stadium, which is to be built near the interchange of interstates 285 and 75 is to be a public-private partnership with an estimated cost of $622 million.
