The P.C. Richard case drags on, as one deadline is extended four months; Site 5 question marks remain

The fate of a potential massive project at Site 5--floated, but not officially proposed--is again delayed, thanks to an extension of time in the litigation between P.C. Richard, owner of a building on the site, and Forest City Ratner.

The electronics store last year sued to stall the planned eminent domain proceeding regarding its store at Site 5, across from the Barclays Center, claiming that original project developer Forest City Ratner promised the company space in the replacement building. 

Greenland Forest City Partners, now the joint venture developer of Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park, was not sued, but the separate LLC representing Greenland independent of Forest City has been served with a subpoena for a depositions and documents.
According to a document filed this week in New York State Supreme Court, the final date for all parties to disclose experts in the litigation was to have been 5/15/17, this past Monday. The parties have agreed to extensions, and now the deadline is 9/29/17.

That of course is not the deadline to resolve the case.
