Another look at the eminent domain hearing: signs point both ways

Another must-read from Atlantic Yards Report.

Leaving readers wondering if Norman Oder has ever clerked for a judge, the intrepid reporter scours the transcript and notes of courtroom observers to take readers through the substance of the oral arguments from the March 30, 2007 hearing on the federal eminent domain case. As is his habit, "The Mad Overkiller" Oder also irons out some of the facts that were fast and loose in the courtroom. Here's the lead:

Could the Atlantic Yards eminent domain case survive in federal court rather than be shunted to state court, where it would stand little chance? Well, a reading of the transcript of the three-hour hearing held 3/30/07 before U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis in Brooklyn suggests it might--and might not.

Just cruise on over to Atlantic Yard Report (link) and start reading.
