The clock stalls (a bit) on Goldstein v. Pataki
Atlantic Yards Report
At least according to the U.S. Supreme Court's official docket, on Thursday, June 12, the nine justices were to consider whether to accept the cert petition--the appeal--in the Atlantic Yards emiment domain case, known as Goldstein v. Pataki.
However, the order list issued today, with the results of Thursday's deliberations, doesn't mention the case. There's only one more conference, on Thursday, during the court's current calendar. So next Monday we'll either have a decision on that cert petition or we'll know that the discussion of that petition will have been postponed until the fall.
NoLandGrab: Postponement of the discussion of the petition until the fall would put a big dent in Bruce Ratner's timeline and plans to break ground.
