MAYOR: LAWSUIT RULING DISMISSED MOST CLAIMS AGAINST RAIL

 

(Thurs., Nov. 1, 2012)—Mayor Peter Carlisle today released the following statement regarding the ruling that dismissed most claims in the federal lawsuit against Honolulu’s rail transit project:

 

            “This ruling does not stop the rail project that is so critical to our island’s future. In fact, the court dismissed the bulk of the plaintiffs’ accusations and upheld the project’s Environmental Impact Statement.

 

“We are confident that a reasonable remedy can address the remaining issues in a timely manner. Today’s ruling will require further analysis, but the bottom line is that the project can and should continue moving forward.”
