NJ Supreme Court won’t review Dinky case

PRINCETON (AP) — The New Jersey Supreme Court has decided not to review a case involving Princeton University’s Dinky train station.

The station on the Princeton campus serves a two-car train known as the Dinky that shuttles passengers to and from the larger Princeton Junction station.

The old station was closed last year and a temporary station opened farther down the line to allow the school to build a $320 million arts center.

The Save the Dinky citizens group had asked the court to consider if a federal review was needed.

The group’s lawyer, Virginia Kerr, tells The Times of Trenton the group is not surprised the court decided not to take the case. “The Supreme Court denies 90 percent (of appeals) and grants 10 percent of them,” Kerr said of petitions for certification.”

Two other lawsuits remain in the court system.
