still waiting

For those wondering what is going on with the stadium issue, we’ll still waiting for a trial date to be set. All I have been told is it’s supposed to be sometime this summer. The three lawsuits — by the City of Berkeley, the Panamoric Hill Association and the California Oak Foundation — have been consolidated into one suit, so there will be only one trial.

Most of you probably have heard that Cal has still gone ahead with some of the planning involved. The university hired Hunt Construction Group to manage the facility, and they have done some pre-construction tasks. But no physical changes are allowed to take place because of the injunction handed down in January. Construction can only begin if and when the ruling on the lawsuit goes in Cal’s favor.
