COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- A Cobb County Superior Court judge has approved the process for the county to issue bonds to pay its share of the new $622 million new Atlanta Braves stadium.

Opponents of the plan argued that taxpayers had no say in the stadium move, and, therefore, shouldn't have to pay for it either. They're expected to appeal Friday's ruling.

The new stadium is scheduled to open in 2017.
