Wed, Jan 18th 2012 02:25 pm
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 plaintiffs claimed a 2002 lease between the two parties violated easement requirements, and inferred trustees illegally granted said lease. This action, the suit alleged, resulted in the "waste of public property" alongside Water Street Landing on Water Street, where WJBT operates.
