A federal judge on Wednesday refused environmentalists' plea for an injunction to bar bulldozing on the Playa Vista development site near Marina del Rey, but gave the plaintiffs until Friday afternoon to appeal his ruling. Officials of the Wetlands Action Network, which along with plaintiffs CalPIRG and the Southwestern Center for Biological Diversity sought the injunction, said Wednesday that they would appeal District Judge Ronald S.W. Lew's decision to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Environmentalists hoping to block construction of the massive Playa Vista residential and commercial project near Marina del Rey received a setback Monday when the U.S. Supreme Court let stand a lower court ruling favoring the development. Developers praised the court's refusal to take up the 5-year-old legal dispute over a federal permit for dredging on a small portion of the project. Foes vowed to press on with their opposition, however.

Re "High Court Upholds Ruling in Playa Vista Project's Favor," Oct. 2: I take issue with Peter Denniston's statement that "this is a victory for genuine environmentalists who care about the wetlands." I consider myself a genuine environmentalist, I care a great deal about the Ballona wetlands and I do not consider this a victory. Playa Vista and its token wetland restoration is not what most genuine environmentalists are working for. This mega-project is simply a victory for developers.
