California Supreme Court Affirms Appellate Court Ruling in Favor of Exposition Construction Authority
LOS ANGELES (August 5, 2013) - In a 6 to 1 decision, the California Supreme Court affirmed the ruling of the Court of Appeal and the approval by the Exposition Construction Authority of the extension of the Expo Line light rail transit project from Culver City to Santa Monica. The Court's decision allows construction of the project to continue on schedule and to provide desperately needed traffic relief to the residents of Los Angeles County.
Work on the $1.5 billion, 6.6-mile Phase 2 extension is already well underway along the entire alignment, with all seven bridges under construction. Currently there are almost 400 workers on the project and this decision will enable them to remain on the job.
Nossaman is counsel to the Exposition Construction Authority in the case and Nossaman Partner Robert Thornton argued the matter in the California Supreme Court.
