UM Archaeologist Sues To Stop Met Square Construction

University of Miami archaeologist William J. Pestle filed a lawsuit last month against the city of Miami over a deal with Met Square developer MDM group, reports the New York Times.

Pestle’s lawsuit will likely delay construction at Met Square. Pestle wants a compromise agreement between MDM and the city to be declared invalid.

Commissioner Marc Sarnoff told the paper that he disagreed with Pestle’s lawsuit and that the compromise will create a ‘truly authentic building.’
