Ratner Foes Go to Court in Start of Long Legal Battle

The Nets must break ground in Brooklyn this year in order to have any chance of taking to the court in their new arena by the 2008-09 season. But critics of Bruce Ratner have taken to another court to stop the Nets' fast break across the Hudson. In what is expected to be a flurry of suits, the critics filed suit claiming a conflict of interest between Ratner and the state agency who must approve the project.
