Do Delays 'Jeopardize' Ratner's Plans for the Nets?

Buried in recent court filings by Bruce Ratner's development company is a claim that unless delays in approval and construction are ironed out quickly, they "could jeopardize the project"--the entire $3.5 billion mini-city anchored by a Nets' arena.
