Correction: A previous version of this story referred to Russell Peterson as an Atherton resident. In fact, he lives in Menlo Park.
Accompanied by attorneys Mike Brady and Zachary Tyson, Menlo Park resident Russell Peterson filed a lawsuit against the California High-Speed Rail Authority and Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board in San Mateo County Superior Court Tuesday, Aug. 11.
In the suit, Mr. Peterson asks the court to declare that the High-Speed Rail Authority cannot begin work on the high-speed rail project without the consent of Union Pacific, which retained certain rights when it sold the corridor in 1991.
