That’s the decision Friday by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Patrick Marlette. He ruled that Sutter corrected shortcomings over traffic, parking and air quality found in the original environmental impact report. Larry Maas with Sutter says the project is on track again. 

"We worked real hard with the court and the city officials to correct those blemishes. It was really a matter of just providing further detail in certain areas and it allows us to move forward with the project and stay on schedule."

The $500 million expansion includes a new women and children’s hospital, a pediatric ER and a new parking garage. A labor union that opposes the project says it’s creating too much pollution.
