Brooklyn Bikeway Survives Court Challenge

, New York Law Journal


The bid by two neighborhood associations to eliminate a bike lane in Brooklyn has fallen afoul of the statute of limitations. The court challenge to the .9-mile Prospect Park West bikeway by Seniors for Safety, Neighbors for Better Bike Lanes and their respective presidents was dismissed by Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Bert A. Bunyan (See Profile) on Monday. In Seniors for Safety v. New York City Department of Transportation, 5210-2011, Justice Bunyan wrote, "The statute of limitations expired, at the latest, in November 2010, at which point no further event needed to take place in order for petitioners to claim to be aggrieved by the bikeway's presence." The decision, however, ordered the city to turn over documents to the groups under a Freedom of Information Act request.
