Las Vegas Sands Corp. announced that the Macao Intermediate Court
has removed an interim injunction that had suspended the company's entitlement to operate a ferry service between Hong Kong and Macao.
The CotaiJet service had been operating for just over a week and was
offering service between Hong Kong's Macao Ferry Terminal at Shun Tak
Centre and Macao's newly opened Taipa Temporary Ferry Terminal when it was
suspended in mid-December.
The plaintiff in the case had sued the Macao SAR Government seeking a
review of the government's decision to grant LVS the right to operate a
ferry service. That legal action suspended the effect of government's
decision, which had the consequence of suspending LVS's ferry service until
further determination of the merits of the claim.
