The Observer files an update on the Broadway Triangle lawsuit, which could affect the construction of 2,000 new housing units. A judge ruled last week that the lawsuit could proceed, but threw out most of the opponents' claims except the one that the city designed the project to favor Hasidic Jewish tenants. Ruh-roh! The suit claims stats show the general population doesn't need as many large apartments as were planned for the project, which could mean a challenge in the offing under the Fair Housing Act.
