CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Attorney Jerry Reese has filed yet another lawsuit against the Charlotte Knights' plans to build a stadium in uptown Charlotte.

Reese says that the $38 million project is unfair to local taxpayers.

Mecklenburg County and the Knights are both listed as defendants on the suit.

A judge dismissed Reese's first lawsuit against the knights in 2007.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Knights released a statement about Reese's suit, his sixth thus far in the ongoing debate.

"All five of Reese’s previous lawsuits have been dismissed by the courts as completely without merit, and those dismissals have been upheld by both the North Carolina Court of Appeals and by the North Carolina Supreme Court," the statement said.
