Work stopped

PARIS (AFP) – The expansion of Roland Garros, the historic but cramped home of the French Open, suffered a new legal blow Thursday when the Paris High Court ordered a halt to building work.

In the latest setback to the long-running saga involving the 400-million-euro ($448 million) redevelopment of the site in the plush western sector of Paris, the Tribunal de Grande Instance (TGI) ordered an interim suspension.

It came just three days after a different court had given the green light.
