All national dailies other than Sankei wrote that Tokyo High Court on Thursday upheld a lower court ruling ordering the GOJ to pay a total of 112 million yen ($1 million) in damages caused by aircraft noise pollution to residents near the U.S. military’s Yokota Air Base in western Tokyo. However, the court rejected a petition for the suspension of late-night and early-morning flights at the base and compensation claims for future noise damage.
