Roland Maw of UCIDA said he, along with the 35 other groups part of the United Fishermen of Alaska, said they’re currently involved in a lawsuit against Kenai River Sportfishing Association, with claims KRSA eavesdropped on a UFA teleconference…
Maw: “Apparently, a number that is registered to Kenai River Sportfishing was on the teleconference for about 70 minutes, and I remember when someone came onto the conference call, came on late, and the moderator asked that party to identify themselves and they never did. And at the time I thought that was odd.”
The allegation is that KRSA then used the privileged information in discussions with the Alaska Board of Fisheries. We’ll follow this story as it develops.
***KSRM wishes to correct a statement in the above article. As of April 12, 2013, UFA has not pursued a lawsuit against KRSA***
