Martell’s Files Suit Over Point Pleasant Beach Parking Ban

A bar has filed another lawsuit challenging a New Jersey shore town’s parking restrictions.

Martell’s Tiki Bar claims the Point Pleasant Beach ordinance is unconstitutional because it discriminates against non-residents.

The town reserved overnight parking in one section for residents only to reduce noise from people leaving the boardwalk.

A judge earlier this year threw out most of the original lawsuit. But the judge found a conflict of interest, saying then-Councilman Michael Corbally should have abstained because he sells real estate in the town. Corbally resigned after the ruling.

Mayor Vincent Barrella tells the Asbury Park Press the lawsuits have an emotional impact.
