The article reports that Palm Beach County, Florida, has postponed for up to 90 days the sale of the second tranche of bonds to help finance construction of a Scripps Research Institute facility in the county because of hurricane-related permitting delays--but litigation could delay the project even longer. Hurricanes that struck Florida in August and September prevented the county from getting the permits and preparing the land, known as the Mecca Farms orange grove, for construction of Scripps' laboratory complex.
