Court Rules on East Hampton Ferry Case
October 13, 2011
East Hampton Star: A long saga of legal challenges to a 1998 East Hampton Town law barring most ferries from docking here came to a close this week with a United States Supreme Court decision not to review the case. The decision was made on Monday morning, on the first day of the Supreme Court’s new term.
The ruling means that a 2010 decision by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals upholding the town law, which banned vehicle and high-speed ferries, will stand.
