BRADENTON, Fla.— In a two-page ruling Friday afternoon, Miami-Dade County Circuit Court Judge Lawrence Schwartz denied a request by two local residents for an emergency injunction to stop the county from selling bonds to finance a new stadium for the Florida Marlins.

The judge’s ruling and some technical changes made to the underlying baseball agreement and bond documents on Friday clear the way for the county to sell about $340 million of bonds, including $90 milllion of refunding debt. The sale currently is expected to take place June 29-30. An additional $100 million variable-rate component is expected to price on July 13, with the entire transaction closing on July 14.
