A Cumberland County Superior Court justice- John C.L. Morgan
Wednesday granted Pike Industries' request to stay a "cease and desist" order
and allow quarrying operations to continue at Pike's Spring Street quarry in
Westbrook. The decision by Justice Thomas Humphrey allows Pike to crush rock,
and to excavate and remove previously blasted rock and material at the site.
Westbrook had issued the stop-work order on Nov. 7 to prevent removal of
existing stockpiles of crushed rock. Pike had asked the court for a stay until
the full court can hear its case.
