On May 18, U.S. District Judge George H. Wu granted a motion for summary judgment in favor of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) and against the Beverly Hills Unified School District (BHUSD). The case, BHUSD v. Federal Transit Administration, et al, involved Metro’s work on the Westside Purple Line Extension Project (WPL). That construction is divided into three parts, all in varying stages of completion at this point: Wilshire/Western Avenue terminus to La Cienega Boulevard; La Cienega to Century City; Century City to the Westwood Veterans Affairs Hospital. The focal point of the litigation is the second extension, slated to be completed by 2025.
