St. Nicholas Church sues Port Authority

The New York Port Authority is actively blocking the St. Nicholas Church building's reconstruction. This is the same Port Authority which couldn't wait to suck up to their Muslim dancing masters when ask to permit the all new Ground Zero Mosque.
From the New york Daily News

A historic church destroyed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks plans a multimillion-dollar suit against the Port Authority and other agencies for blocking its reconstruction.

A notice of claim was filed Monday on behalf of St. Nicholas Church and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, declaring their intention to sue.

"This claim arises out of the arrogance, bad faith and fraudulent conduct of the Port Authority in preventing St. Nicholas from re-building its church at Ground Zero," the church says in its legal filings.

According to the notice, the church will seek a minimum of $20 million along with unspecified restitution for damages and expenses "incurred in reliance of the Port Authority's promises that St. Nicholas would be rebuilt at 130 Liberty Street."

The church, which had been located at 155 Cedar St., was founded in 1916 by Greek immigrants and destroyed in the terror attack on the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001.

I should note Mr Obama supports the building of the Ground Zero Mosque, but hasn't spoken up about rebuilding St Nicholas. He is a clumsy man and a terrible president.
