How many millions of dollars of taxpayer money did Atherton waste on this frivolous lawsuit? How many years did they delay the electrification of Caltrain, thus causing more delays and overcrowding and air pollution? Shame on Atherton for being such a poor neighbor in our Bay Area community.

I recently got back from a trip to Japan, where electrified trains are everywhere. These trains are fast, quiet, clean, and safe. Such a shame that we have to wait years more to get this basic transportation system here, thanks to Atherton.

I see Atherton law suites are a many as before. I am not surprised they lost. Done for awhile or are you going to appeal and pay the attys. more money. After all, they are need money.
