Judge Tells District to Settle Benning Library Case

On Friday, February 15, Superior Court Judge Judith E. Retchin handed plaintiffs in Tingling-Clemmons v. Fenty another victory when she ordered the District government to "provide language for relief" in settlement of the final count of the suit over the future of the Benning Library. Judge Retchin's order will, in effect, require the government to address community concerns about the size and services of the new library, the rumored sale of the library land for redevelopment, and the loss of the book collection, including an important collection of African-American literature.
