Supreme Court Denies Challenge of Warriors Arena Development

With the Golden State Warriors slated to ceremonially break ground for the development of their new Mission Bay Arena and office complex at noon today, California’s Supreme Court has just denied an appeal filed by the Mission Bay Alliance aimed at derailing the development and seeking a stay of construction.

From San Francisco’s City Attorney, Dennis Herrera: “The Warriors project is an important civic priority for San Francisco. It’s widely supported and has been thoroughly vetted. A world-class city like San Francisco deserves to have an event center like this. A small group of opponents had threatened to litigate ‘until the cows come home,’ despite losing in court every step of the way. Well, guess what? The cows have come home.”
