Court: Pima County may have to repay donations

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

An appeals court ruling says Pima County may have to refund money to a couple who helped pay for a Catalina Highway bike trail head that has never been built.
   The Arizona Daily Star reports that Jean and Jim Gorman envisioned a trail head to be named in memory of their son, who was killed biking on the road in 1999.
   The couple worked with the county on the project beginning in 2000 and paid $30,000 toward the $215,000 cost.
   The county stopped the project after neighbors complained and the Gormans sued for breach of contract in 2010. Last week's Arizona Court of Appeals ruling came after a local judge dismissed the claim. It says a judge should consider awarding damages to the Gormans.
