Community groups opposed to Bruce Ratner's plan for a new Nets arena and surrounding mini-city will be in court today, trying to stop the demolition of buildings at the site. Ratner claims the buildings are ready to collapse. Community groups want an independent assessment. The demolition is significant because it supports Ratner's claim that the area is "blighted", which would help him in any condemnation proceedings.
