They still don't like the deal, think it is bad for the tax payers, and are threatening the city/Jamison (if the deal goes through) with a lawsuit.
It's basically a giant mess and it's very unlikely to get totally untangled for years, especially if they do finalize a sale. Goldwater could take them to court for years, and city officials are in political danger over the situation.
Goldwater has gone from tax watchdogs to saboteurs now. They are hostage holders. Their goal is to get the Coyotes out of Glendale. They are opposed to it because they don't want the taxpayer's to pay anything despite the fact polls seem to show that the taxpayer's are willing to pay. Its more of forcing their ideology down the peoples throats.
