WE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THISThis probably wasn't the best year to launch a blog named Tightwad Hill. The denizens of the real Hill are suing the University to block the stadium re-design on the grounds that it threatens their free view of Cal games.
The legal grounds here are something of a mystery. Dan Sicular and crew clearly don't own the land on which they squat. Their suit claims that Tightwad Hill is a cultural resource, and that the University hasn't taken that into account in its planning. OK, but as we understand it, the re-designed stadium would obscure only a portion of the view from the Hill. If this is true, and Tightwad Hill can still accommodate fans on gameday, then Sicular has no legal leg to stand on. Are we missing something?
