#b#Battlefield Injunction#/b#

A state superior court judge has upheld an injunction against the Institute for Advanced Study’s plans to build 15 faculty housing units on land that the Princeton Battlefield Society contends was an important Revolutionary War site.

The 80-acre Princeton Battlefield Park preserves the countryside where George Washington defeated a British force on January 3, 1777, just days after his victory in Trenton. The battle improved American spirits and caused the Redcoats to abandon their outposts in most of New Jersey.

The Battlefield Society is suing the Institute to stop the construction of faculty housing. Although the construction site is not part of the neighboring battlefield park, the society argues that British and American soldiers fought and died there, so it should be preserved.

Bruce Afran, the attorney representing the Battlefield Society, is also representing a group of citizens suing Princeton University challenging its tax-exempt nonprofit status, in an unrelated case.
