Bangor Daily News: A federal court has ordered that the Nova Star ferry—which operated between Portland and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia for the past two years—be seized for not paying nearly $200,000 to a harbor pilot company.

The warrant for the seizure of the Nova Star was ordered Friday by Magistrate Judge John Rich III. He also ordered that after the federal marshals seize the ferry that it be put in the custody of National Maritime Services which is a global company that holds seized vessels.
