Appeal Over Atlantic Yards Suit is Filed


    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 suit—which argued that the state’s review of the project didn’t fully account for its possible effects on traffic, security and open space—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.
