Supreme Court May Hold Your Access Rights in Their Hands

The good folks at Chi Wulff posted on a case argued today before the Supreme Court. The case comes out of Montana, but it could have implications for access rights to rivers around the country. This could be your day in court, or mine.

Interestingly, the arguments on both sides have to do with the navigability of rivers, and the implications of that for the ownership of the beds and banks of said rivers. They're going all the way back to the journals of Lewis and Clark for this one.

It would be a good thing for you to know something about this case. Read the Chi Wulff post here. And stay tuned.
