Barrett-Jackson and Russo and Steele battle over land in Scottsdale
Russo claims that Barrett-Jackson is intentionally trying to ruin their business by attempting to lease the needed land for themselves. Jackson says that they have no desire to run Russo and Steele out of business, but that R and S brought it upon themselves by using the land without permission in the past. The State Land Department will investigate both applications and decide who has the better claim. According to the Arizona Republic article, if that can't be determined, then the lease would be decided by a closed bidding process. With its much deeper cash reserves, that bidding war would undoubtedly go to Barrett-Jackson, but we'll have to wait and see what happens. We'll try to keep you posted.
