John Batchelor interviewed PERC president, Terry Anderson, on the upcoming stream access case in Montana.
On April 29, the Montana Supreme Court will convene at Montana State University to hear the case of Public Lands Access Association, Inc. v. The Board of County Commissioners of Madison County, et al. This hearing will afford all MSU students, whether from in-state or out-of-state, an opportunity to see our justice system in action. The openness of our legal system is especially important in this case. The plaintiff, now calling itself the Public Lands/Water Access Association (PLWA), challenges the legality of Madison County’s resolution to permit James Kennedy, a landowner from Georgia, to attach a private wood rail fence to a bridge across the Ruby River.
