Securing a license to run a ferry service is going to ruin my business.
You are going to be taken to court for getting a lisense to run a ferry business when Aaron Ogden is already running a ferry business.
Aaron Ogden ran a ferry service and Thomas Gibbons secured a license to do the same thing. Ogden thought his rights were being infringed and the New York State Court forbade Gibbons from docking his boats in New York.
Ogden took Gibbons to court because he thought that Gibbons was going to ruin his ferry business.
