The article reports on the appointment of lawyer Ralph I. Lancaster Jr. of Pierce Atwood LLP as special master to adjudicate the dispute arising from Crown Landing LLC's proposal to build a bond-financed wharf on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River. Delaware regulators have opposed the proposal because of coastal zone protection issues. Delaware was given jurisdiction over the Delaware River during the Depression era.
