Former Executive Returns To Court Over Hunting Cabins Decision

It has been more than a year since a former Tommy Hilfiger executive lost a court fight over hunting cabins that were built without a permit on his island in the Nanticoke River, but the cabins have yet to be demolished. The attorney representing Edwin Lewis says his client has not been issued the permits needed for the demolition. County officials say they are withholding the permits because Lewis is asking to build a house in place of the cabins. The site is inside a Critical Area, close to Chesapeake Bay tidal waters. The Wicomico County Board of Appeals is scheduled to hear Lewis’ request within weeks. Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler filed a civil lawsuit against Lewis on July 1 seeking the removal of the cabins.
