Nope, because NEBL would have to appeal to them for that fourth complaint and they haven't even applied to the regular appeals court for that one.

But IANAL.

I laughed at this way too much this morning, imagining an unfortunate autocorrect and a new Apple product iANAL.

Alas, I learned it's just an acronym - "I am not a lawyer."
ROFL! IANAL has been an acronym since back before the internet was a household name, so I didn't even consider other interpretations...

I think it also stopped being an acronym before the internet was a household name.

You are welcome!

Oral arguments are scheduled at the Appeals court for October 26. Two more months to wait and I am very curious what they will be talking about since NEBL has been shot down on everything.

Wait, what's going to the appeals court now? I thought it had already been through there and to the Supreme Court?

Yeah, it gets weird real quick because of all the different complaints that are going on. The Supreme Court turned down NEBL on the complaint that the building would be bad for the environment. The bond was sent back to the district court who quickly dismissed all the complaints and closed the case. The height issue was dismissed by the district court and NEBL has not appealed that decision. Of course, NEBL can end the appeal at anytime when they run out of cash.

So what's scheduled at the appeals court then, if the height issue didn't get appealed and the environmental issue is closed?

The District Court is finally going to make a judgment on that bond amount. The final amount will be somewhere between $100,000 and $5.9 million.

If NEBL can't pay, then tye remnants of what's left will crumble apart.

On October 6 there is a motion hearing to settle all of this in District Court.

The only thing left in the District Court is the new bond amount for the Stay of demolition.

The bond amount was announced today as being roughly $4.5 million. Plaintiffs have one week to raise it.

Update cheat sheet:
Counts 1, 5: Filed 11/21/16, Dismissed by district court 7/24/17, Appeal filed 9/22/17

Counts 2, 3, 4: (MERA claim) Filed 11/21/16, Dismissed by district court 3/30/17 - Appeal filed 5/25/17, Oral argument at Appeals court 10/26/17

Bond: Bond and Stay of demolition granted 5/25/17 for $100,000 - Appeals court remanded back to District Court 6/27/27. Supreme Court petition filed 6/29/17, rejected 8/22/17. District Court signs Order 9/22/17 for NEBL to post a bond of $2.89 million for the City and $1.68 million for Alatus by 4pm on Friday.

So if the bond is not paid, demolition can proceed and then they will finish the arguments in the Appeals court about the MERA (environmental) and height arguments.

By the time this is all done...I am pretty doubtful the tower will still move forward. We shall see.

On the contrary, I don't think Alatus would have wasted this much time only to give up. If there was demand for 40 stories of condos before this neighborhood bull, there's still demand now.
