Drakes Bay Oyster Company: Not Dead Yet

Drakes Bay

The deadline for the eviction of Drakes Bay Oyster Company from federal waters — waters near Point Reyes that the Department of the Interior says should now return to being a preserved wilderness — has been extended to March 15, and as the Press-Democrat is reporting, lawyers for Drakes and the DOI are in federal court today in Oakland fighting about the closure, and whether the government used "bad science" to decide on the eviction. At the very least, the oyster purveyor could get a stay and remain open for a while longer while this is resolved. [Press-Democrat, Earlier]
