Bristol Bay Tribal Suit Moving Ahead

A court challenge against the Murkowski administration’s takeover of coastal zone management will go ahead. A judge has denied the state’s motion to throw the case out. The suit was filed last May by 6 Bristol Bay Native tribal organizations against the state Department of Natural Resources’ 2005 Bristol Bay Area plan. Tuesday, Judge Fred Torrisi made the decision to deny parts of the State of Alaska’s Motion to Dismiss the case.
