Suffolk judge halts immediate eviction of Charlestown boaters

A Suffolk County judge prevented the immediate eviction Thursday of 112 boats from two Charlestown piers that have fallen into disrepair, after an emergency motion was filed by Attorney General Martha Coakley against the longtime marina owner.

Martin Oliner, a New York-based tax attorney and mayor of a small village on Long Island, sent out letters Tuesday ordering the boat owners to vacate Piers 6 and 8 of the Shipyard Quarters Marina by Thursday at 5 p.m.
