Her Day in Court

No sports metaphors here, but Atlantic Yards opponents are saying that Valentine’s Day is the perfect time for City Councilwoman Letitia James to argue against the sweetheart deal that developer Bruce Ratner supposedly is getting–and the alleged conflicts of interest behind the push for demolishing six buildings in the project footprint.

In a development that may be even more significant, South Brooklyn Legal Services joined the crusade Tuesday. So far, there is a widespread perception that everybody who is against the project is rich, and everybody for it is poor, and SBLS’ participation mayl change that–if only a wee bit.
