Court upholds Clinton library plan
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- The Arkansas Supreme Court upheld the city's method of seizing land for the Clinton Presidential Library on Thursday, eliminating the last legal roadblock in the way of construction.
The court, in a 6-0 decision with one abstention, said a Little Rock landowner failed to prove that the $200 million library and archive complex wouldn't be a park as the state defines it.
The head of the Clinton Presidential Foundation said the dispute over Eugene Pfeifer III's land had been the only thing delaying construction of the 28-acre site on the south bank of the Arkansas River.
A decision against the city could have forced the foundation to find another site for his planned academic center and museum.
