Matt Findley discusses the background of the case.
Attorney Matt Findley, who argued the recently decided case of Sturgeon v. Frost in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, spoke to the Pre-Law Society on April 15 about his preparation for and experience of arguing in front of the highest court in our nation.

The case addressed jurisdiction over rivers in national parks and more specifically, whether Mr. Sturgeon could use his hovercraft to hunt moose in the Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve.
