Superferry Halts service to Kauai Indefinitely

September 24, 2007

Hawaii Superferry suspended service to Kauai yesterday days before its planned restart, citing the need to take care of all legal challenges. Plans to restart Alakai’s service were not expected to restart until court cases on both Maui and Kauai have been completed. The announcement came as Superferry won a victory in Kauai Circuit Court when Judge Randal Valenciano threw out most of an environmentalists' lawsuit against the operation. The Thousand Friends group suffered the setback when Valenciano dismissed a large portion of its case to block the Superferry from returning to the Garden Isle. The group, however, will get a chance to argue next week that the Superferry is a public nuisance and its running violates the state Constitution. (Source:
