A Superior Court judge Friday dismissed a Pebble-backed lawsuit against a regional seafood development association in Bristol Bay. It’s a legal victory for the association, which was sued by six of its members last month. 


Last month, six commercial fishermen filed a lawsuit against the regional seafood association in Bristol Bay to which they belong. The lawsuit, funded by the Pebble Limited Partnership, challenges more than $250,000 in funds the association had spent on groups that oppose the Pebble Mine. Now, the Dunleavy administration has added its voice to the dispute.
