Atlantic Yards Tripped Up Again

New, 6 comments

In a somewhat surprising decision, the state's highest court has decided to hear the appeal filed by Atlantic Yards opponents in the eminent domain case against New York State. A judge dismissed the lawsuit last month, setting into motion all of developer Forest City Ratner's recent Atlantic Yards momentum. The Court of Appeals will hear the case in October, and may not issue a decision until after the December 31 deadline that FCR needs to kick-start construction by in order to secure its tax-free financing. If that happens, opponents may not even care which way the court rules. [NYO]
