Wow, we hadn't realized just how litigious those folks in Arcadia can be. They've now served Caruso, or at least his company, with not one but two lawsuits in the effort to stop The Shops at Santa Anita. Patricia Jiayi Ho has the story for the Star-News:
Anti-development group Arcadia First! said it will sue on the grounds that the environmental impacts of the project have not been fully addressed. Group leaders say the suit will negate the need to gather signatures for a ballot initiative.
"We think that's the cleanest way to go about it," said Sung Tse, the group's spokeswoman. "We don't want the mud-slinging that is going to happen. We'll just let a third party rule."
No mud-slinging, eh? I think it's a little too late for that, Tse.
