COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- The Cobb County Board of Ethics dismissed a complaint against four county commissioners who approved a deal that would bring the Atlanta Braves to Cobb County in 2017.
Cobb County resident Larry Savage filed the ethics complaint against 4 out of 5 commissioners after they approved a move for the new Braves Stadium. Savage claimed that the commission was not transparent.
In a brief meeting on Wednesday, the Cobb County Commission voted 6 to 1 to dismiss the complaint.
"We just saw the first punt in Major League Baseball," Savage said. "There's no point to having an ethics board if they won't make decisions about ethics."
