California Judge Says No to Hollywood Target


A California judge has ruled to halt the construction of a three-story Target in Hollywood.

The structure sits partially built and untouched since 2014 when LA County Superior Court Judge Richard L. Fruin Jr. ruled that the approval of the project violated planning rules. 

Two years later, council members approved new zoning for the site but that vote brought on new legal challenges.

Fruin ruled that the "do-over" still violated the law because he says city officials failed to examine the environmental effects the new zoning mechanism in the neighborhood.

The lawyer for the project that sued Target to block the project says the retailer should demolish the structure and build a new store no taller than 35 feet.

Target spokeswoman Kristy Welker says the company is disappointed with the decision and are working on their next move.
