At the Walk Don’t Destroy Brooklyn fundraiser held Saturday by Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn, DDDB announced that it would file another lawsuit today against the Atlantic Yards development project, this time regarding “the failure of the Empire State Development Corporation to issue a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement in response to changes in the project,” according to the Atlantic Yards Report. This lawsuit, sponsored by 19 community organizations, joins two other major lawsuits currently in the courts, both co-sponsored by DDDB: the massive eminent domain case and the MTA case. Update: DDDB along with 19 other community groups did in fact file suit earlier today. Read all about it here.
