State Superior Court, 3 Pemberton Sq, Courtroom 1017, Boston*

courthouse. The judge is hearing oral arguments on the Supplementary Final  
Enviornmental Impact Report on the dangerous Level 4 biolab, located adjacent  
to Roxbury in Boston. For more information, contact Vicky Steinitz

*There was a major victory in the state court*

o The judge in the state court ruled that the certification of the  
Environmental Impact Repaort (EIR) was "arbitarry and capricious."

o The judge wrote "The Biolab, with its BSL4 laboratory is no ordinary  
project, the potential risks it poses to the environment and public health  
are extraordinary and, potentially catastrophic".

*“In addition to vacating the certification of the Biolab project, the  
judge also ordered Boston University to resubmit its EIR with answers to two  
main questions:*

1. "What is the worst that can happen if a laboratory worker were infected  
with a contagious pathogen he was studying?

2. Would the impact be significantly less if the Biolab were located outside  
of a city?"
