The state of California is being sued over its sale of the Orange County fairgrounds because of allegations the sale was unfair.A group of companies that lost its bid for the site is accusing the state of rigging the auction in a way that favored Costa Mesa-based Facilities Management West.

That company was selected to buy the 150-acre property for $100 million last month.

State officials refused to comment on the lawsuit Wednesday.
