This chapter explores the federal and state investigations into Judge Griesa's rulings. Supporters hoped new investigations would find error or point out means for Westway to proceed. Opponents saw investigations as an opportunity to further highlight all that was wrong with the project. Unconstrained by the formalities of federal court trial procedure and benefited by dozens of interviews, hearings, and reviews of voluminous documents, investigators had an opportunity to paint an even richer picture of the Westway battles up to 1982. In addition, these political investigations could look at the ultimate question that Judge Griesa really had no jurisdiction to examine: did the Westway project make sense?
