Ratner Stops Prep Work at Arena Site

Site preparation work for the new Nets' arena in Brooklyn was halted this week with Bruce Ratner and his critics offering different reasons why. A Ratner spokesman said the work had gone as far as it could go pending the final outcome of lawsuits next spring. Critics say that the Nets owner had previously said work would continue through litigation and claimed financial problems were the real reason for the halt.
