Rail obstructionists should accept the fact that at-grade rail deserves as much chance as the at-grade automobile.
To give a perspective of who is suing and who is not, Parcels 82 through 86 are suing and others are not. The suing attorney himself lives in Parcel 86. Note that Parcels 82 through 86 are the ones least affected by the bike and pedestrian path, with the restricted-use easement being 75-ft-wide there and it's joining with the 100-ft-wide Expo right-of-way where Northvale turns:

;DSue the NIMBY'S? On Saturday morning i was listening to the Bill Handel show on KFI' 640 AM. He told a story of a man who was famous for suing anybody and everybody. He could go down on Guinness's book of world records as the man who sues the most people in the world. Maybe someone here can sue the NIMBY' groups for mucking up the process. After all they don't like progress and so they sue . So why don't we sue them for throwing road blocks against the rail progress.? Just some well meaning thoughts...

As you all may have heard, NFSR filed a stay, or a request to stop all work until the legal issue of whether or not the environmental impact report used correct methodologies in determining grade crossing is resolved by the Supreme Court of California.
Hopefully this gets shot down. This same tactic was used against the Orange line and cost taxpayers hundreds of millions in delays. After it was built the group that did it said it was a mistake - the valley is unthinkable without this line (but they still had to pay Metro's legal fees).
Here's a link to the NBC coverage of the story. Interestingly, no one from NFSR would go on camera. What gives? Are they scared to face the music?

I've been riding the blue line all my life, and even at 4 years old it didn't take rocket science to figure out that you should be careful around tracks. At-grade is just a part of light rail. It completely defeats the purpose of light rail. For as many grade separations they want(and this line overall has a TON of grade separations compared to other LRT systems), we might as well build Heavy Rail.
Plus, if this line was built as a subway these same people would complain about a tunnel going under their house.
These people just don't know how badly needed this line is. Getting Metro Rail to Santa Monica is going to be the biggest/best thing that happened to LA Rail since the Red Line.
