Jeff was joined by John Sturgeon. They discuss his well known case that has gone all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

After an extensive process of trying to challenge that, he eventually took the case to court. Sturgeon has become something of an icon in Alaska for challenging the federal government on land use.
