Court of Appeals Permits Condemnation for Barclays Center

In a 6-1 decision, the New York Court of Appeals has turned down critics' arguments that the state's Empire State Development Corp. violated New York's constitution in pursuing eminent domain to acquire land for Atlantic Yards, including Barclays Center. The ruling means the ESDC will now be free to begin condemnation proceedings against landowners. There is no appeal to the US Supreme Court.
