Class of out-of-state fishermen mount constitutional challenge to Alaska’s discriminatory fee structure for fishing licenses
Clients Carlson, Donald H et al.
Jones Day represented, as appellate counsel, a class of out-of-state fishermen who successfully challenged Alaska’s fishing license pricing scheme, which charges out-of-state fishermen many times more for the privilege of pursuing their trade in Alaska’s waters, as a violation of the Privileges and Immunities Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
