State Agency Pushing Forward on Ratner Project, Dumps Lawyer.

In an attempt to move Bruce Ratner's megadevelopment forward, the state agency responsible for approving it has decided to dump a controversial lawyer. The Empire State Development Corporation has been under fire for hiring David Paget, who worked for Ratner, to handle its environmental review of the new Nets' arena. So the ESDC has replaced Paget. At the same time, it is defending its right to hire him.
