KCRA Sacramento: Judge To Lift UC Berkeley Construction Ban

BERKELEY, Calif. -- A judge said she will lift an order banning construction on a new sports center at the University of California, Berkeley.  The ruling late Tuesday dissolves the building ban in seven days, giving opponents a chance to appeal.  The proposed center spurred an 18-month-long tree-sitting protest in an oak grove that would make way for the new building.   Neighbors, city officials and the California Oak Foundation filed suit challenging the project on environmental and seismic safety grounds.
