Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn and 25 co-plaintiffs are appealing a judge’s dismissal of a lawsuit over Atlantic Yards’ environmental impact statement. A state judge tossed the suitâ€”which argued that the state’s review of the project didn’t fully account for its possible effects on traffic, security and open spaceâ€”in January. The appeal ultimately aims to make the state conduct a new environmental impact review study for the development. Atlantic Yards Report says oral arguments will be held in September.
