New, 19 comments

PROSPECT HEIGHTS?A late day decision has been handed down dismissing the lawsuit challenging the environmental review process for Atlantic Yards. The case was filed last April. The decision in the suit filed by 26 community groups was issued by New York State Supreme Court Judge Joan Madden. No details were immediately available, but Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn (DDDB) said it planned an appeal. The group tried to put a positive spin on the latest legal setback, headlining the release conveying the news: "NY State Supreme Court Rules for ESDC in Atlantic Yards Lawsuit. Project Cannot Move Forward While Federal Eminent Domain Case Is Pending." The Federal case was also dismissed, but has been appealed. DDDB's Daniel Goldstein said in the release: "We expect to prevail in that lawsuit, as well as on the appeal of today’s decision."
