San Diego city voters approved Measure E with nearly 57% of the vote, but the will of the people may or may not be enough to overturn the 30-foot height limit in the Midway District. The outcome of the measure could end up being tied up in court.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reporter Jennifer Van Grove has written about the opposition that could delay the plans to transform the Midway District, which is the area surrounding the Sports Arena. Van Grove joined Midday Edition on Tuesday to discuss the possible legal challenge to the measure.
