RIVERSIDE >> Attorneys for Ontario and Los Angeles will be back in court Monday morning for significant a motion involving the takeover of LA/Ontario International Airport.

LA is asking Riverside Superior Court Judge Gloria Connor Trask determine whether or not certain Ontario airport documents including the 1967 Joint Powers Agreement are subject to termination.

Ontario filed a lawsuit in June 2013 against L.A. and Los Angeles World Airports, an agency of that city that operates the Ontario airport, Los Angeles International Airport and Van Nuys Airport.

The lawsuit aims to rescind or reform the terms of a 1967 agreement that gave control of the Ontario airport to L.A.

“Because the statutes of limitation of rescission and reformation are four and three years, respectively, Ontario’s claims are more than 40 years late,” according to a motion filed by Los Angeles on Sept. 10.

Andre Cronthall, the attorney representing Ontario, said he will ask that the court reserve a date to hear Ontario’s cross-motion on the same day. Attorneys for Ontario will ask for the hearing to be held in late October, he said.
