Target is not just taking heat for its large political donation to an anti-gay candidate, its plan to bring a store to Hollywood and Western has drawn enough fire that it's going back to the drawing board, despite approval by the L.A. City Council in June. Facing lawsuits, the company will develop en environmental impact report (EIR), which was never done for the 74-foot store at Hollywood and Western, according to Curbed LA, which digs deep into the issue. Last month two separate lawsuits were filed "alleging the city violated municipal code by granting nine variances for the project," noted the blog. "Additionally, the suits allege approval of the project violates provisions of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA)."

The new store, which when it happens will bring jobs to the area, was supposed to break ground later this year. That won't likely happen until at least a year and some change from now.
