Daily News goes rogue: critics "filed 200 eminent domain lawsuits"

From a not completely cogent Daily News article posted last night and headlined Barclays Center set to dazzle at Brooklyn’s new Crossroads of the World: As top acts line up to schedule a gig at the gleaming new arena, critics continue to curse its arrival:
Critics — who filed 200 eminent domain lawsuits protesting what they called a “sham” environmental review process — say the 2,250 affordable housing units promised, along with rail renovations and open space, still have not been provided.

Um, there were two eminent domain lawsuits, plus another challenging the act of condemnation.

And those suits challenged the taking of private property, not the environmental review.
