As PlanPhilly’s Jared Brey reports, the Historical Commission’s decision to allow demolition of the historic Church of the Assumption was upheld by Court of Common Pleas Judge Idee Fox on Tuesday.

This is just the latest legal twist in a years-long battle over the church’s preservation.

Judge Fox reversed the Board of L&I review’s decision that overturned the Historical Commission’s finding of financial hardship that led to permission to demolish the Church.
