Taipei wins in Wenlin Yuan dispute

Taipei City Urban Redevelopment Office director Lin Chung-chieh (林崇傑) said the Wang family has filed 11 lawsuits against the city government over the stalled project. The city has won 10 so far.

The High Court is rehearing its lawsuit against the city’s approval of the urban renewal project.

The Wang family also filed a lawsuit against the project developer for damaging a container the family has erected on the construction site to hinder construction.

There could be a breakthrough for the stalled project if the court hands down a ruling in this case, he said.
