Work stopped at Playa Vista

A three-judge panel of the state's Second District Court of Appeal sided with local groups and the city of Santa Monica and ordered that construction activity stop on phase two at the huge Playa Vista development, citing a flawed environmental impact report. The court ruled that the city of Los Angeles erred in 2004 in approving the second phase of construction. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William F. Highberger ruled in favor of Playa Vista last year, but the appeals court overturned that ruling. NBC-4

Edited to clarify work stopped only on phase two
