NEW MILFORD - A Bergen County man is upset about the recent toll increases at the Hudson River Crossings. As a result, he's filed a 21-page federal lawsuit against the Port Authority.

Yoel Weisshaus, of New Milford, says the toll hike is taking too much of a toll on him. He claims that the tolls are not reasonable and discriminate against the poor.
