"We're very much in the game." That's the attorney for Las Lomas Land Company, talking to the Daily News about its appeal in the case of the Newhall Pass development and Superior Court Judge David P. Yaffe's decision to throw out a $100 million lawsuit against Los Angeles. At one point, the proposed project--on 555-acres between Santa Clarita and the city of Los Angeles--would have added roughly 5,500 units, 2.7 million square feet of office, retail and community space and a 300-room hotel. Sounds like the politicians are yawning:
Los Angeles City Councilman Greig Smith, a leader in the charge against the development, said the appeal won't make a difference. "I think it's a total waste of their time and their money, but it's their time and their money," he said. "This plan was flawed from the beginning at every level and there's nothing that can be salvaged out of it." Press release on the appeal can be seen here.
