For the past several weeks, I've been covering the legal controversy surrounding the development of the Wilson Yard project in Uptown.
Here's the latest: Fix Wilson Yard's attorney, Thomas Ramsdell says he filed an updated complaint against the city and the developers on Friday.
And Ald. Helen Shiller (D-46) is already speaking out against the allegations.
"I think that it's already been decided, and the judge has ruled against them before. They just regurgitated some of the same stuff," Shiller says. "I think it's frivolous."
She also criticized Fix Wilson Yard for continuing legal action against the project developers.
"I think it is irresponsible that they continue to keep the developer in [the law suit] when none of the charges that they are now alleging has anything to do with him," says Shiller.
Ramsdell says the new complaint, is, in fact, new.
"The new complaint focuses on the 2005 Redevelopment Agreement between the City and Holsten, and the three amendments thereto, approved in 2007 and 2008. As parties to the agreement, the Holsten defendants are properly included," Ramsdell says.
Ramsdell doesn't believe that Fix Wilson Yard's latest legal action is subject to the same defenses as the previous lawsuit. He maintains that Fix Wilson yard will continue to "insist on transparency, accountability, and an end to this incredible waste of taxpayer dollars."
