NYU Faces New Litigation If Expansion Begins, Foes Say

Opponents of New York University’s proposed expansion said they’ll return to court to stop the school from trying to carry out any part of the project after a judge blocked most it from proceeding.

Justice Donna M. Mills of state Supreme Court in Manhattan ruled on Dec. 7 that portions of the proposed 2-million-square-foot (186,000 square meter) expansion would interfere with public parks and consequently require approval by the state legislature, not just city authorities.
