Library Lawsuit

A lawsuit challenging the construction of the newly-opened, $14.5 million North Beach Branch library has been thrown out by a state appeals court. The ruling, which was unanimous, stated that the building of the new branch and demolition of the old, midcentury library was given adequate environmental review and did not violate San Francisco's Charter or General Plan. Demolition of the old library is currently on hold to give the groups that filed the lawsuit time to appeal to California Supreme Court. [SFAppeal]
