 WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court has turned down property owners and tenants facing eviction to make room for a new NBA Nets arena in Brooklyn.
The justices rejected an appeal that was intended to stop development of the Atlantic Yards project. Eleven property owners and tenants said that using the government's power to take the property, called eminent domain, violates the Constitution because the project would primarily benefit the developer, not the public.
Developer Bruce Ratner says he wants to build 16 skyscrapers, an 18,000-seat arena for the professional basketball franchise and thousands of apartments. The area currently is occupied by a rail yard, industrial buildings, and some businesses and homes.
The case is Goldstein v. Pataki, 07-1247.
