Forgive me, I'm a natural pessimist, but it seems pretty smart of Local 54 to base its misguided lawsuit against the Revel Entertainment Group tax deal on the procedural grounds that the Economic Development Authority did not properly advertise the meeting at which it approved the deal.

I suspect the union knows it doesn't really have any substantive grounds to challenge the deal. But knowing how the Christie administration operates -- that is, without much attention to policy detail -- I sure hope the governor and the EDA played this by the book.

To have the Revel deal undone by a Sunshine Law violation would be a travesty.
