Wow, I gotta hop on the wayback machine to remember what was the first time I wrote about One Broadway Plaza, the proposed 37-story office tower in a residential SanTana neighborhood that would be the tallest building in Orange County history AND the biggest Freudian monument yet erected for the SanTana's City Council's deluded, Norma Desmond-esque vision of itself. 2003? 2004? I forget, so convoluted this sordid episode is.

As reported by the Voice of OC, the Fourth District Court of Appeals reversed a previous decision by an Orange County Superior Court judge that made Harrah stick to what he signed.

Hey, maybe I should start reporting on the city again instead of concentrating on Klukkers so much…
