Retains Jurisdiction until April 16, 2020
SAN FRANCISCO, CA: On Thursday, April 16, 2015, U.S. District Judge William Alsup issued a further order on the case involving the efforts by the U.S. Postal Service to sell Berkeley's historic Main Post Office at 2000 Allston Way.
As a follow-up to the order dismissing the case as moot,
Judge Alsup has retained jurisdiction until April 16, 2020 to enforce the requirement that the U.S. Postal Service provides the City of Berkeley and the National Trust for Historic Preservation with a 42-day notice in advance of the closing of any future sale of the building or of any final determination to relocate services.
Since supporters of the Berkeley Post Office are cautious in relying on statements made by the U.S. Postal Service, Alsup's order was very welcome news.
