DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — It is very possible that the New York State Court of Appeals will issue its decision on the constitutionality of eminent domain at Atlantic Yards Monday or Tuesday.
Gary Spencer, the public information officer for the state’s high court, said that decisions on cases with the Court of Appeals will be handed down Monday and Tuesday, and then on the following Tuesday, Dec. 1. However, he did not say whether the Atlantic Yards decision would be included in these. If not, the court will resume session in mid-December.
There has been much speculation that the ruling would be made before Thanksgiving, which is Thursday, but the Court of Appeals has not said anything to that effect.
I have high hopes that ground is broken on Brooklyn's new arena in December and the Nets play here in 2011! Let's Go Brooklyn!!!!!!
