In a ruling Wednesday, [U.S. District Court Judge Thomas] Hogan wrote that the National Park Service failed to comply with federal law requiring that it analyze the impact of the Cylcorama demolition and alternatives to destroying the building.
"This is another chance to take another look at it," said [Dion] Neutra (Richard Neutra's son), who along with the group Recent Past Preservation Network sued the government to save the building. "Narrowly speaking, the park could jump through some hoops and tear building down, but we hope they revisit the idea of reusing it."
