The former town supervisor who sued New York over a ban on floatplanes from certain wilderness lakes in the Adirondacks says he's dropping the lawsuit.

The Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports that former Warrensburg Town Supervisor Maynard Baker says he can't afford to continue the suit he launched in 2010.

The federal lawsuit sought to reopen nearly 40 Adirondack lakes and ponds, arguing that a state ban violates the Americans with Disabilities Act.
