The local media were out in force to cover the hearing on the Coalition to Preserve McIntire Park (CPMP) request for a preliminary injunction to protect further damage to the land that CPMP claim was illegaly transferred to VDOT for Meadow Creek Parkway construction. Althought the injunction was not granted, Judge Jay Swett of the Charlottesville Circuit Court offered to find an early court date for the hearing on the legality of the land transfer.
