A Constitutional Question

Mark Haskell of Camden is challenging the state's ban on personal watercraft on Lake St. George and other ponds. The Maine Supreme Court is expected to decide whether the ban is unconstitutional.
A semiretired photographer who owns a camp on the lake in Liberty, Haskell, 52, invited a summons from a warden by operating a Seadoo during the Fourth of July weekend in 2005.

"I bought it specifically to challenge this law," Haskell said of his $13,000 machine. Add in legal bills, and the cost of his endeavor approaches $20,000. [Link]
