The Pre-Law Society is hosting a discussion by Anchorage attorney Matt Findley, who argued the recently decided case of Sturgeon v. Frost in front of the U.S. Supreme Court. 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.
