Court finds fault with environmental review of site
ALos Angeles County Superior Court judge has halted construction of an Echo Park elementary school, saying that the Los Angeles Unified School District acted in bad faith by putting together a shoddy environmental review. Judge John A. Torribio's decision to nullify the district's review is a major setback. The district will have to consider other sites and gather community opinions before moving forward. That could take months and delay opening of the $60-million school, which was expected in 2010. To read The Los Angeles Times article, click here.
