ST. PETERSBURG As expected, the battle over Bezu has gone to court. In a lawsuit filed in Pinellas County Circuit Court, opponents say the city failed to follow the law and erred in approving plans to build the 19-story, 20-unit Bezu next to the historic Flori de Leon apartments in downtown St. Petersburg.

The suit, filed this week by residents of the Flori de Leon and the neighboring Spanish Palms condos, seeks a court order requiring that the approval be quashed and reconsidered "under the correct burden of proof." Named as defendants are the city, The Driven Ziggy LLC and First and Fourth Development Company LLC. None of the defendants would comment on the suit.
