Critics Lose Big in Barclays Center Battle

Critics of Bruce Ratner's plans for a new Nets' arena have suffered another loss. This time, a federal magistrate has ruled that their best hope for overturning Ratner's approval be thrown out of court. A federal judge must second that ruling, but magistrate's rulings are rarely rejected. The magistrate said the case belongs in state court. Critics took the case to federal court because they knew their chances there were better than in state court. Meanwhile, the Barclay Bank controversy continues.
