Critics File "Last, Best Chance" Appeal

Critics of plans for the Nets' Brooklyn arena have appealed a lower court ruling upholding the state's right to condemn land for the arena. New York Law Journal called the appeal the critics' "last, best chance". The Court of Appeals doesn't have to take the case. If it does, oral arguments wouldn't take place for months, perhaps beyond a Dec. 31 deadline for ground breaking, threatening the project.
