A Columbia Expansion Suit Tossed

New, 13 comments

One lawsuit against Columbia's Manhattanville expansion has been tossed out of court. Yesterday, a state court rejected a suite filed by landowner Nicholas Sprayregen challenging the environmental review of the Columbia project. The city had found the impact acceptable. A State Supreme Court judge said the case was "without merit." Sprayregen is "giving serious consideration to an appeal." The big litigation, however, would be a threatened challenge to the use of eminent domain. [Columbia Spectator; Columbia Expansion Coverage]
