Prospect Park West Lawsuit Hearing Postponed Until May

The first court date for the Prospect Park West lawsuit has been pushed back two months. Though Brooklyn Civil Supreme Court Justice Bert Bunyan was originally scheduled to begin hearing the case tomorrow, the case is now scheduled for May 18, according to the court system's online information.

The city Law Department, which will represent the defense in the case, said that the postponement came at the desire of the court itself.

Insofar as the bike lane opponents' case is unlikely to stand up in a court of law, the delay is good news for them. It will give them more time to continue milking the lawsuit for press.
