East Hampton Can Use Airport Fees to Pay Lawsuit Costs

The Federal Aviation Administration has ruled that the Town of East Hampton may continue to pay legal fees from a federal lawsuit brought by members of the aviation industry with fees it collects from the airport.

The lawsuit was brought in 2015, after the town passed a law that imposed a year-round curfew for flights in and out of the airport between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. That law also banned noisier aircraft from flying at night and limited the total number of trips such aircraft could make during the season.
