High-speed rail looks for contractors even as lawsuit looms

The California High-Speed Rail Authority is looking for firms to handle engineering and surveying for its prospective route south of Fresno, even as a lawsuit threatens to derail plans to start construction this summer between Fresno and Madera. This kind of contradiction is typical for an agency that has about a $6 billion starting bankroll and a deadline of September 2017 to spend the federal portion of it.
