Court records show former Tulsa mayor Terry Young is among a number of people listed in the civil suit which was filed on Monday.

Both lawsuits concern the sale of nine acres of Helmerich Park. They claim the sale of the park land to a private developer was unlawful.

The Tulsa City Council earlier this month, voted to abandon part of the park to make way for a potential REI store as well as some other retail businesses.

The council also approved giving the developer another half-million dollars to install infrastructure in the area.
