(The Center Square) – A lawsuit over who has control over nominating members of the Metro Nashville Aviation Administration will continue.

Tennessee Attorney General Jonathan Skrmetti announced his team filed a notice of appeal of an October ruling in Davidson County Chancery Court calling a law changing the board nomination process unconstitutional.

“We look forward to litigating this case to a clear and decisive resolution so airport leadership can focus on serving our community and our visitors,” Attorney General Press Secretary Tim Meads said.

The October injunction from a three-judge panel blocked a Tennessee law that created an eight-member board with two appointees each for the mayor, governor, House speaker and Senate speaker.

Over the past month, power was granted back to the previous seven-member board, appointed by Nashville’s mayor and approved by the Metro Nashville Council.

During the new majority state official appointed board’s stint, it approved a contract extension and $210,000 pay raise for the authority’s CEO Doug Kreulen, according to the Nashville Business Journal.
