*There was a major victory in the state court in 200?*
The judge in the state court ruled that the certification of the
*E*nvironmental *I*mpact *R*eport (EIR) was "arbitrary and capricious."
The judge wrote "the Biolab, with its BSL4 laboratory is no ordinary
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, he
also ordered Boston University to resubmit its EIR with answers to two
main questions: *
"What is the worst that can happen if a laboratory worker were infected
with a contagious pathogen he was studying?
Would the impact be significantly less if the Biolab were located
outside of a city?"
