A Suffolk Superior Court judge expressed skepticism Friday that the state’s commuter rail operator has legitimate claims to interrupt or overturn the T’s decision to award the multi-billion dollar commuter rail contract to another company.
After a two-hour court hearing, Justice Mitchell H. Kaplan said he would consider arguments made by Massachusetts Bay Commuter Railroad Co. attorneys, but did not indicate when he would make a decision on the company’s request to halt the takeover of the system by Keolis Commuter Services, a transit company that is owned in part by the French government.
Kaplan indicated that he was dubious of some of the arguments made by MBCR, which has alleged that the T broke its own rules to award the commuter rail contract to Keolis despite the company’s failure to meet requirements set by the T.
