Lawsuit seeks to overturn Acadia NP gateway town's restrictions on cruise ships

Bar Harbor, the main gateway to Acadia National Park in Maine, has been sued over local efforts to reduce cruise ship arrivals.

The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court last week was spurred by a citizen's petition seeking to limit daily cruise ship traffic to no more than 1,000 passengers and crew. The Town Council adopted the limit at its November 8 meeting.
