Jan. 14, 1959: State Supreme Court Upholds L.A.’s Deal for Dodger Stadium

L.A. Times, 1959

Keith Thursby writes: The state Supreme Court ruled unanimously in favor of the Dodgers and City Hall, moving plans for a baseball stadium in Chavez Ravine one huge step closer to reality. The Times’ coverage was breathless, no surprise since the paper was an open champion of the deal with the Dodgers..

“Progress must not be stopped in Los Angeles,” Mayor Norris Poulson said in Gene Blake’s lead story.
