World Trade Center lawsuit: Investor behind the suit resigns

Two Canal Street Investors' lawyers also are no longer involved with the case

NOLA.com reports the leader of Two Canal Street Investors, the group engaged in a lengthy legal battle to block the redevelopment of the World Trade Center into a Four Seasons hotel, has resigned—and the company’s lawyers no longer want to be involved with the case.

Could this mean the lawsuit will finally die? Stuart "Neil" Fisher, the former owner of Two Canal Street Investors, said in a Facebook post that even though he quit he "remains a strong proponent" of the lawsuit, even drawing Biblical comparisons to the legal battle:

"However, much the same as Moses in the Old Testament, the task of bringing this to conclusion will rest with the new president and board who will energetically pursue this matter to trial leaving no stone unturned with the proper resources to do so."
