On Thursday January 21st, past president John McCall Jr. flied suit on behalf of the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League to halt the demolition of Oak Cliff Christian Church.  District Judge Martin Hoffman of the 68th court gave DISD till January 29th to supply OOCCL with financial records.  Were any federal funding to be used in this project, it would kick in Section 106 of the National Historic Trust Act. 

The head of any Federal agency having direct or indirect jurisdiction over a proposed Federal or federally assisted undertaking in any State and the head of any Federal department or independent agency having authority to license any undertaking shall, prior to the approval of the expenditure of any Federal funds on the undertaking or prior to the issuance of any license, as the case may be, take into account the effect of the undertaking on any district, site, building, structure, or object that is included in or eligible for inclusion in the National Register. The head of any such Federal agency shall afford the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation established under Title II of this Act a reasonable opportunity to comment with regard to such undertaking.
