vs.

 

 

MARTHA’S VINEYARD AIRPORT COMMISSION and DEPOT CORNER, INC.

 

 

 

 

 

MEMORANDUM OF DECISION AND ORDER ON THE PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR A PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION

 

           

This action arises out of the defendant, Martha’s Vineyard Airport Commission’s (the Commission) decision to award a lease of Lot #33 in the Airport Business Park (the Property) to the defendant, Depot Corner, Inc. (Depot), following a public bidding procedure.  The Plaintiff, Airport Fuel Services, Inc. (AFS), has been the lessee of the Property pursuant to a 20 year lease that expired on March 9, 2017 (the Lease).  It constructed a gas station, convenience store, and car wash on the Property and operated them over the term of its lease.  In its complaint, AFS alleges that “the 2017 RFP issued by [the Commission] was misleading and an inherently unfair proposal” and seeks an order requiring the Commission to lease the Property to it, according to its bid proposal.  The case is before the court on AFS’s motion for a preliminary injunction enjoining the Commission from leasing the Property to Depot.
