Lawsuit against the District 1 & 2 Dungeness Crab Season Change

On June 11th  The Village of Kasaan filed a lawsuit against the Board of Fish for the regulation change that brought the District 1 & 2 dungeness crab season to match with the rest of Southeast.  They also asked for a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) and a Preliminary Injunction (PI) against implementing the District 2 crab opening.  The State attorney had until 3:00 pm on June 12th to file a response and the TRO hearing was held at 4:00 pm.  The Judge DENIED the TRO at the hearing and a preliminary injunction hearing will likely be held sometime next week.
