Deirdre Newman A group of Newport Shores homeowners want a canal near their homes dredged to get rid of the sediment they say is damaging the water quality and health of the marshlands.

Plans to accelerate the name change of a Newport Beach hotel will not stop a lawsuit filed against the hotel's owners and management company, a plaintiff's attorney said Monday. Canal Street Grande Inc., based in Irvine, filed a lawsuit Thursday alleging that the new owners and managers of the Sutton Place Hotel violated federal and California trademark law and engaged in unfair competition practices by continuing to use the Sutton Place name after closing a deal to buy the hotel July 11. The lawsuit named hotel owners at San Clemente-based Sunstone Hotel Investors Inc. and the hotel's management company, Toronto-based Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, as defendants.
