PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – A court has ruled against beachgoers who sought more access to the sand  in the Misquamicut area of Westerly. The Rhode Island Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld a lower court’s ruling that said landowners along Atlantic Avenue could put up fences to keep the public off their 2-mile stretch of beach.  The attorney general’s office and environmental groups had argued that the land had been dedicated to the public more than a century ago. The court disagreed, finding the beach is privately owned.  The attorney general says he’s disappointed but points out that the decision does not affect a state constitutional guarantee to access the shoreline.
