Sticking up for residents sick of the late night noise at the East Hampton Airport, East Hampton Town recently filed a petition with the United States Supreme Court to regain its authority over the hours of operation at the airport. The U.S. Court of Appeals ruled against the town in 2015 after a group of aviation companies sued over the curfews, according to 27East. Although a federal judge allowed the curfews to remain for two summers, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals eventually ruled that local municipalities cannot supersede FAA rules, even if they don’t receive federal funding. This decision was “an unprecedented expansion of federal regulatory authority,” the town said in a statement this week. [27East]
