    Time to let it go. It was dead on arrival anyway and will continue to be thrown out.

    “The judge determined that a little-known provision in the law entitles HUD to rebuild on sites where public hosing had been built in the past, whether their plans affirmatively further fair housing or not,” Goldsberry said. “We disagree with that ruling.”

    Too bad decisions affecting tens of thousands of people can't be made based on whether its a good idea or not.

    Government has laws we didn't know about letting government do whatever government wants.

    Each delay is valuable. There are people being paid to support or oppose the project.
    The longer it takes, the longer they get paid. Supporters get taxpayers money, Opponents must depend on private funding.
    Restoring the ballance of segregated, tax funded, voters to pre Ike levels is important to supporters.

    Sadly for Ms. Goldsberry, the policy was known by just about every one else except her. There is also a bit more to it than the quote from this lawyer. Long past time to move on.

    Sorry IHOG. These provisions/laws were not a surprise. In Fact, so many bought up properties north of broadway after the hurricane, and some before, that the rebuilding of a reduced number of housing definitely still results in a lower segregation level than existed before the storm.
