Supreme Court Rejects Arena Critics' Appeal

In the latest and the most devastating defeat for critics of the Nets' new arena, the US Supreme Court on Monday refused to grant a hearing on their appeal of lower court rulings favoring Bruce Ratner. The Court rejected the appeal with only Justice Sam Alito in favor. Critics had hoped the Court would revisit an eminent domain decision from 2005. The decision is likely to clear the way for ground breaking later this year.
