Court Ruling Favors Feds in fishing Monitor Dispute

by Steve MacDonald

Ellen-diane and David GoethelA Federal Court has sided with the Government and NOAA in the ongoing effort to put local New Hampshire Fisherman out of business.

A group led by New Hampshire fisherman David Goethel sued the government over the rule change. The fishermen lost in federal district court and appealed. A 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel in Boston agreed with the lower court on Friday that the group didn’t file its lawsuit within a 30-day statute of limitations.
