A lawsuit challenging the legality of the ESDC’s relocation plan for 13 renters in the Atlantic Yards footprint was tossed out of state appellate court on Friday. Twelve of the renters live in rent-stabilized units, and their chief argument was that the ESDC had not formulated a feasible plan for helping them find comparable affordable housing. The decision, which Atlantic Yards Report reprints here, says the ESDC has indeed come up with a realistic plan for relocating the tenants. Other anti-AY legal challenges are still awaiting their day in court: Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn has two outstanding lawsuits challenging the project’s proposed use of eminent domain and its environmental review.
