State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. has dismissed the second lawsuit filed by developer Jerome Williams and Lewiston Management Group against Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours and the Village of Lewiston.

The lawsuit, which was filed March 21, 2011, questioned the validity of an agreement between the village and WJBT.

This action, the suit alleged, resulted in the "waste of public property" alongside Water Street Landing on Water Street, where WJBT operates.
