Philadelphia residents win round with Fox Chase Cancer Center
Philadelphia Inquirer, August 19, 2008
Philadelphia residents unhappy with the proposed expansion of Fox Chase Cancer Center won a legal skirmish as a judge awarded them legal standing in the case. The center and the city had wanted to limit them to "friend of the court" status, the difference between being able to state your case in court and having the power to appeal, lawyers said. After years of squabbling, the Philadelphia City Council voted for the project in March, but the court must approve the deal. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for later this month, but Fox Chase has said it needs to expand soon and has begun exploring an alternative site in Delaware.
