NEW ORLEANS -- The fate of the historic Dixie Brewery on Tulane Avenue is expected to be decided tomorrow at civil court.

Last week, contractors were poised to demolish the brewery until the owners, Kendra and Joseph Bruno, obtained a temporary injunction.

The Brunos are challenging the taking of their property on constitutional grounds.

The state expropriated the building in 2011 and later transferred it to the VA as part of the massive LSU and VA Hospital complex.
