Judge grants airport's stay motion

Posted: May 11, 2018 5:16 PM Updated:

Judge Arthur Barcinas has granted the airport's motion to stay, pending resolution of a separate court motion by DFS. The airport and DFS have been locked in a years-long legal battle over the airport retail concession contract which was awarded to DFS rival Lotte Duty Fee.

Judge Barcinas has already ruled that the contract was void, and the airport is appealing the decision to the Supreme court. Barcinas has allowed Lotte to remain as the master concessionaire pending a high court ruling, but DFS is seeking an immediate re-bid of the contract, and the removal of Lotte.

The decision by Barcinas stays the DFS motion until he issues his ruling on it.

In a statement, the airport says the court's decision is important to "help stabilize its financial condition and mitigate potential harm."
