CORRECTED. NY Press Corps Gets It Wrong.
Develop Don't Destroy, Brooklyn
Lawsuits Are Alive and Well. There was much confusion (read: underinformed mistakes made) this morning regarding some legal news related to "Atlantic Yards." Each news outlet covering the story got a little piece of it wrong, but the Daily Intelligencer blog of New York Magazine got the story lavishly wrong (they have since corrected their errors and NoLandGrab has covered their fiction fixed for reality).
Before we go any further we'll state it simply: There was no decision today on the federal legal challenge to New York State's and Forest City Ratner's abuse of eminent domain. Any news reports saying so or implying otherwise are misleading.
