Cemetery v. Coastal Distribution

SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK APPELLATE DIVISION SECOND JUDICIAL DEPARTMENT


June 8, 2010

PINELAWN CEMETERY, APPELLANT,
v.
COASTAL DISTRIBUTION, LLC, ET AL., RESPONDENTS.

In an action, inter alia, for a judgment declaring that a certain lease dated August 30, 1904, was terminated, the plaintiff appeals from an order of the Supreme Court, Suffolk County (Costello, J.), dated January 8, 2008, which granted the separate motions of the defendants Coastal Distribution, LLC, and New York and Atlantic Railway for summary judgment dismissing the complaint insofar as asserted against each of them and directed the dismissal of the complaint against all of the defendants on the ground that its claims were preempted by that provision of the Interstate Commerce Commission Termination Act which grants exclusive jurisdiction to the United States Surface Transportation Board to regulate transportation by rail carriers.
