Judge Sides with Coast Guard

Monday, October 08, 2007
A federal judge has refused to block the U.S. Coast Guard from enforcing a security zone in Kauai's Nawiliwili Harbor when the Hawaii Superferry is in port. The Coast Guard established the zone after a flotilla of protesters prevented the ferry from landing August 27th. In seeking a temporary restraining order, attorney Lanny Sinkin argued the zone would deny free speech by keeping protesters out of the water. U.S. District Judge Helen Gillmor says the security zone allows both protesters and supporters to exercise their First Amendment rights on land around the harbor. [Source: AP]
