Arena Critics Facing Court Dates, Defections

Critics of Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards--anchored by the Nets' new arena--will be in federal appeals court Tuesday, trying to reverse a lower court dismissal of their suit to stop condemnation of properties in the way of the project. A loss in the appeals court would significantly diminish critics' chances for success, although they have other suits pending. Arena supporters also point to several defections among those suing Ratner.
