Judge Gives Green Light to NY-NJ Toll Hikes, For Now

A federal judge in New York has declined to order the elimination of toll increases imposed last summer at bridge and tunnel crossings in New York and New Jersey.

Judge Richard Holwell said in a written decision Monday that it was unlikely that a lawsuit challenging the increases imposed in September will succeed.

AAA of New York and New Jersey challenged the increases with a lawsuit against the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

The judge says it would be an “extraordinary and drastic remedy” to roll back the toll increases before both sides can study the evidence. And he says AAA so far has failed to demonstrate a likelihood that it will succeed in its lawsuit.

Lawyers did not immediately respond to messages for comment.
