Roy Cohn, lawyer for Harry Weinberg, then owner of Fifth Avenue Coach Lines, used the argument in court that Fifth Avenue Coach held its routers in perpetuity and therefore they could not be seized the NYC. The judge ruled that it only applied to Route 1 Fifth Avenue. All other routes were new extensions granted by the NYC Bureau of Franchises. There they could be revoked and taken over by NYC.
After losing his argument, Weinberg gave up operating any NYC routes.
