Hawaii Super Ferry Forced to Stop Running

HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii's new inter-island ferry service has
ceased operations in the wake of a state Supreme Court ruling.

Hawaii Superferry, which operates an Oahu-Maui catamaran that
can accommodate 836 passengers and about 200 vehicles, was forced
into the move Monday.

The high court rejected a state law that allowed the company to
operate while an environmental study is being conducted.

Superferry said in a statement that it was "hugely
disappointed" in the decision.

In order to proceed prudently, the company said it had "decided
to cease operations for the present."

Superferry says it will make one additional Honolulu-Maui round
trip Thursday to get vehicles back to their home islands.
