According to Yahoo News, one of the new World Trade Center buildings won a consolation prize for being the USA’s tallest building. Due to a 408ft needle at the very top of the building, including it into the total height measurement has been in question.
Tuesday of last week, the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat considered the needle to be apart of the building, making it stand as the tallest building in the U.S., just making it past the Sears Tower and another Sky Scraping apartment complex near Central Park.
With any other building, the needle would not factor into the buildings height. In this occasion, the council decided to include the extra 408 feet since the building represents a significant event in U.S. history.

According to the Home Builders Association of Greater Grand Rapids, a contractor who provided a substantial amount of improvements to a church construction job lost his lien rights due to a late sworn statement. The sworn statement was provided after the start of litigation rather than before the engagement of litigation, which is stated in the requirements of the Michigan construction Lien Act.
The contractor did appeal the decision, but the appellate court stated that there was clear language stated in the act, which stated that a suit cannot be enforced until a sworn statement was provided.
